September 9, 2021
A 12-year-old boy died Wednesday after being shot during what police called a "neighborhood dispute" in the Sumner-Glenwood neighborhood on Minneapolis' North Side.
He was shot at 3:41 p.m. in the 800 block of N. Aldrich Avenue, in a cluster of apartment complexes, according to police spokesman Garrett Parten. What began as an argument between two people ended with another boy shooting the victim, whose involvement in the altercation remained unclear. The suspect - who witnesses described to police as being in his midteens - fled before police arrived.
Emergency responders arrived to what Parten called "a chaotic scene" and found the boy in critical condition. He was taken to HCMC, where he died.
