2 women shot, injured in separate incidents in Minneapolis Friday

Two women were shot in separate, non-life threatening incidents that police do not believe are connected in Minneapolis Friday night.


At 7:53 p.m. Friday, officers responded to a ShotSpotter activation on the 3100 block of Girard Avenue North. There was also a report of a crash in the area.

While officers did not locate a victim, they did find evidence of the crash.

Officers received word that a person arrived at North Memorial Hospital with a gunshot wound. Officers found a woman there suffering from a gunshot wound to the leg.

Investigators found the woman was in a car and received the gunshot wound to the leg while the car was moving. It is unclear whether she was the driver or passenger at the time of the incident.

While heading to the hospital to get treatment for the gunshot wound, the car crashed. Nobody is in custody as it relates to this shooting.


A few hours later, officers responded to the 200 block of West Broadway Avenue on another report of shots fired. They were not able to locate anyone involved in the shooting, but received word that a gunshot wound victim arrived at North Memorial Hospital.

Officers found that a woman was standing in the area when she heard gunshots and felt a pain in her wrist. Her friend took her to the hospital for treatment of the non-life threatening injury.

Nobody is in custody as it relates to this shooting, either.
