Police: Weekend homicide victim was shot downtown, not during Uptown gunfire
June 24, 2020
Police on Tuesday said a man who was initially thought to be fatally shot in Uptown early Sunday morning during a hail of gunfire that wounded several victims was actually shot in downtown Minneapolis.
The person they said died, identified by family as 27-year-old Cody Pollard, from the violence in the bustling entertainment district, was shot that same night downtown. The number of people shot in Uptown is now 11, all of them in their 20s.
Police spokesman John Elder said in a statement that after the shootings, several people arrived in private vehicles to HCMC to "a very chaotic scene." The man later identified as Pollard was among them, and he was eventually pronounced dead after lifesaving attempts.
