June 29, 2022
A 34-year-old man visiting the Twin Cities for a wedding celebration was one of four people hit by gunfire near the Stone Arch Bridge in Minneapolis over the weekend, say family and friends, who described him as an innocent bystander.
Tyler King, of Nashville, was hit in the face by gunfire that also sent three other people to the hospital late Saturday, according to the family and an online fundraising effort started by his friends on behalf of his wife and children to cover expenses related to the shooting.
The posting said King was hospitalized after suffering a stroke and bleeding on the brain. Another webpage started by those close to King said he's had surgery to relieve swelling on the brain. A spokesman for HCMC said Tuesday morning that King was in critical condition.
