The violence came after three men were wounded in two apparently unrelated shootings within moments of each other Saturday afternoon in Minneapolis.

Minneapolis police are investigating six shootings that wounded eight people, including a 15-year-old, between Saturday afternoon and early Sunday, a continuance of the year's grim pattern of weekends marred by gunfire.

All eight are expected to survive, according to police spokesman Garrett Parten.

The teenager was shot just before 9:30 p.m. Saturday. Officers responded to multiple reports of shots fired in the 1500 block of Nicollet Avenue near Loring Park and found evidence of gunfire at the scene. The teen was taken to North Memorial Health Hospital in Robbinsdale.
