Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey, seen at a May 19 vigil for Aniya Allen, said the city has asked state and federal agencies for assistance responding to an increase in violence.

Minneapolis police are bringing in outside help as they try to temper weekend violence that killed a least four people, including a college senior who was out celebrating graduation.

Mayor Jacob Frey, speaking a day after a mass shooting downtown, said the city has asked state and federal agencies for assistance, as Minneapolis police face a shortage of officers.

"Safety in our city has to be a priority," Frey said Sunday, calling the reinforcements "really, really critical."
