Woman charged with hiring four gang members to kill ex-boyfriend
A 26-year-old woman has been arrested and charged with hiring four gunmen to kill her former lover, a plot that police say nearly succeeded when the man's car was sprayed with bullets in northeast Minneapolis last week, seriously wounding him and another woman.
But both the man and the woman, who was pregnant, survived the attack after extensive surgery, police said. It wasn't immediately clear whether the woman lost her fetus when she was shot.
The incident happened at 11:24 p.m. Dec. 19 in the 1200 block of Buchanan Street in northeast Minneapolis, according to a criminal complaint.
