As year's end, violent crime up in Minneapolis for the fifth straight year

 


It was around 2 a.m. on a recent Monday in downtown Minneapolis when the pop-pop-pop of gunfire pierced the din of bar closing time.

Spotting a rival gang member, a gunman opened fire on a group of people hanging out outside the First Precinct police station, on 4th Street between 1st and Hennepin avenues, setting off a brief shootout that left one woman hospitalized with multiple gunshot wounds, according to police.

That brazen shooting underscored the rise in gun violence this year.
