A 35-year-old Minneapolis man is dead following a triple shooting near the 2700 block of 3rd Street North on Memorial Day, police confirmed.
"It's just a bad thing, that's all I can say it's a bad and sad thing. It's my nephew, I love him all the way around the world and back again. That's the thing we used to say to each other all the time," said a woman who identifies herself only as the aunt of 35-year-old Larry Davis.
Minneapolis police were alerted to a fight in the area at 1:20 p.m., and as they were responding, they received a "person with a gun" call, as well as follow-up calls about an alleged shooting. Upon arrival, Davis was found dead in the street and another man with a non-life-threatening gunshot wound, who was brought by ambulance to North Memorial.
Shortly after that, a gunshot victim believed to be part of the 3rd Street North shooting was brought to Hennepin County Medical Center with critical injuries, though not by ambulance.
