Another Minneapolis homicide sparks a cry: Stop the gun violence

Standing a half a block from where a man was shot and killed two hours earlier, the Minneapolis police chief and community leaders said enough is enough.

The man who was shot and killed Monday evening was the city’s fifth homicide in six days and the 40th this year, outpacing the 32 homicides in 2014.

“The community needs peace. We need people to put the guns down,” said Police Chief Janeé Harteau. “These cases aren’t necessarily related … but the common denominator is … gun violence. Gun violence is taking over the streets.”
