February 10, 2022
A 15-year-old boy was seriously injured and a bus driver was wounded in north Minneapolis in two separate shootings on Wednesday afternoon, authorities said.
In the first incident, the boy was found suffering from a life-threatening gunshot wound after police responded to a report of gunfire near the intersection of N. Golden Valley Road and N. Penn Avenue. The boy, a student at Minneapolis North High School, was rushed to a nearby hospital in critical condition.
The boy was standing by or walking up to a bus stop across the street from Wally's Foods, a popular local corner store, when the shooting happened, authorities said. A 911 caller reported seeing a group of young people who'd been hanging out nearby scatter after the shot rang out. A possible suspect was also seen running from the scene, but no arrests had been announced as of Wednesday afternoon.
