Minneapolis police are trying to sort out exactly what led to a shooting on the third floor of the Marshall Apartments early Monday morning. Clearly, multiple shots were fired in the hallway of the apartment building, which is popular with University of Minnesota students. Shots were also fired outside on 14th Avenue SE, in the heart of Dinkytown.
The shooting victim has been identified as Mohad Osman, a 20-year-old man from New Brighton, Minn. He was taken to Hennepin County Medical Center with a non-life-threatening gunshot wound and was listed in satisfactory condition Tuesday evening.
"I was just leaving the bar. I heard gunshots and saw a car tearing off. I ran over because I heard screams," said witness Libby Parker. "I just held his head. I was just trying to keep his eyes open, keep his breathing steady, just to see if I could keep him calm and awake for the police."
Building management said the suspects in the shooting have been identified, but Minneapolis police said that's absolutely not the case.
The people involved in the shooting were not residents of the Marshall Apartments, and management said legal action has been initiated against the resident who allowed the suspects into the building.
