Man is fatally shot after bar closing downtown; Minneapolis' first homicide in 2017
January 9, 2017
Two people were shot shortly after bar closing time Sunday in downtown Minneapolis, with one of the victims dying from his wounds, according to authorities.
Five people were shot in downtown in 24 hours over the weekend, police said, and at least nine have been wounded by gunfire citywide since the start of the year.
Police have yet to release any of the victims’ identities but an Indiana woman on Sunday said the man who died was her brother, William Irvin, 35, of St. Paul.
