Violent crime drops in Minneapolis, but shootings still prevalent


While violent crime has receded in Minneapolis in recent weeks, the number of shootings and other violent episodes has remained stubbornly high in certain pockets of the city.

Homicides have dropped by about 40 percent in 2016, compared to this time last year, with 17 slayings reported as of July 25, the last date for which numbers had been tallied.

Still, in the wake of the recent unsolved drive-by shooting deaths of a grandmother and a 2-year-old boy in north Minneapolis, city officials remain concerned.
