Minneapolis crime spree targeting Latino men raises worries


Normally, the street corner outside Mercado Central is teeming with people darting in and out of stores, lugging groceries to a bus stop across the street or otherwise going about their business.

But, as Marina Lopez insists, the past few months have been anything but normal.

Lopez, who runs a clothing shop inside the usually bustling market on the corner of E. Lake Street and Bloomington Avenue S., says business hasn’t been so good lately, at least not since the area was hit by a string of robberies targeting mostly Latino men on their way home from work or from the grocery store.
