Family, friends hold vigil for woman killed in N. Minneapolis

- Family and friends of a Minneapolis murder victim gathered for a vigil at 36th and Penn Avenue North Sunday.

According to Minneapolis police, the woman was in her car in north Minneapolis around 11 p.m. on Friday when she was shot and killed.

Family identified the victim as Dana Logan, 46, of Minneapolis. They say she was an innocent victim killed in the crossfire.

“She took care of everybody. I loved that about her,” said Logan’s sister Verna Jean Patterson. “She is just one unbelievable person.”

Patterson said Logan had just dropped off her grandniece and had two other children in the car when she was shot.

According to family and friends, Logan was like a mother to her many nieces, nephews and their children.

“She always had a lot of kids with her. She would give them $5 and take them to the Dollar Tree—they would think they were on a shopping spree,” Patterson said. “She would take in everybody and anybody.”

Logan was one of two people killed in north Minneapolis this weekend. Police responded to reports of a man slumped over in a car at 48th Avenue North Saturday morning, and discovered he was dead from a gunshot wound.
