1 dead, 1 injured in north Minneapolis shooting

MINNEAPOLIS — A man was killed and a woman wounded after someone shot at a car in north Minneapolis.

Police say they were called to the intersection of Plymouth and Washington Avenues on Saturday evening on a report of a car accident. But Sgt. John Sullivan says that after officers arrived, they realized it was a shooting.

There were no arrests by Sunday afternoon. The woman's condition was not immediately known. She had surgery Saturday night.

The Star Tribune reports that about two weeks ago, another shooting in north Minneapolis involved a victim inside a car. That incident at 43rd and Girard Avenues was also first reported as a traffic crash.

In that case, 36-year-old Steven Meyer, of Eden Prairie, died of a gunshot wound to the abdomen. Police are still investigating.
