After fireworks mayhem, more cops to be deployed for next 2 weekends in Dinkytown, elsewhere near University of Minnesota
November 4, 2022
In the wake of recent incidents involving fireworks being used as weapons, police from the University of Minnesota and the city of Minneapolis say they will provide "enhanced public safety protection" at night in Dinkytown and near campus for the next two weekends.
The school disclosed the initiative to students, faculty and staff on Wednesday, following at least three reports of late-night Halloween weekend disturbances that all involved fireworks being used as weapons targeting people and buildings.
No arrests have been announced in any of the incidents, and police have yet to say whether the same perpetrators were responsible.
