Two men were killed in separate shootings Sunday in north Minneapolis, marking the 54th and 55th homicides in the city this year and ending a violent week in a pocket of the city's North Side.
No one had been arrested in the shootings, police spokesperson John Elder said Sunday evening. Authorities have not released the identity of the two men or the circumstances behind the shootings.
Officers were called to the 2400 block of N. Emerson Avenue in Minneapolis' Hawthorne neighborhood just after midnight Sunday after several reports of gunfire detected by the area's ShotSpotter network. Arriving on the block, they found a man dead inside a vehicle, according to police.
