One dead, 11 injured in Minneapolis shooting

An initial tweet from police advised the public to avoid the area in Uptown Minneapolis where the shooting occurred.

One man has died and another 11 have been injured during a shooting in the US city of Minneapolis.

Those hurt were at local hospitals with “various severity levels of injuries”, Minneapolis police wrote on Twitter just before 3:00am local time.

It said their injuries were not life threatening.

No-one was in custody in connection with the shooting as of 4:00am local time, according to a police statement.

A preliminary investigation indicated “individuals on foot” started shooting about 12:30am local time and later fled the scene, police said.

An initial tweet from police advised the public to avoid the area in Uptown Minneapolis where the shooting occurred.

The tweet gave a specific address, which corresponded to a commercial district near a theatre and several bars and restaurants.

Photographs posted to social media showed windows at the theatre and another storefront shot out.

The area is about 5 kilometres west of the Minneapolis commercial area and neighbourhood hit by rioting in the wake of George Floyd’s death at the hands of a police officer on May 25.

Mr Floyd’s death has sparked a move to overhaul the Minneapolis Police Department, which has prompted pushback from opponents who question how citizens will be protected from violent crime.
