Police investigated after a mass shooting over the weekend in the Uptown neighborhood of Minneapolis. On Monday, Mayor Jacob Frey announced a multiagency effort to quell the bloodshed that has persisted in the past several weeks.

The shock of a mass shooting in Uptown that left one man dead and 11 other people wounded had barely subsided Monday when multiple shootings elsewhere in the city swelled the number of casualties.

On Monday, the day three separate afternoon shootings on the North Side left nine people injured, Mayor Jacob Frey announced details behind a multiagency effort to quell the bloodshed that has persisted over the past several weeks.

Joining the Minneapolis Police Department will be virtually every law enforcement agency within reach: the Hennepin County Sheriff's Office, Metro Transit police, and federal authorities from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, the FBI and the Secret Service, according to the mayor.
