About 30 minutes ago Minneapolis police responded to shots fired at or near 2655 Newton Ave. N. I was in the area and heard at least three shots though, according to info on Police Clips, other callers thought it was a gunfight...
In my subjective opinion, it sounded like a cheap nine millimeter composed mostly of plastic. At least 4 young black males were seen running fast northbound on Newton Ave. N. moments after the shooting. When police arrived, at least two young black males were seen running along the same street in the same direction at Olympic track star speed.
I asked if anybody was dead and I was told one person was hauled off by ambulance with a gunshot wound to the leg. It was said there were many witnesses but none cooperative. A black female at the scene asked officers looking for shell casings if they could let her know if they found a car key. She didn't even say "please."
I asked if the victim was a young black male and one officer responded in a way that appeared to be an affirmative albeit darkly humorous response. Officers were seen closely examining the wall near a side door on 2655 Newton Ave. N. and the ground nearby.
The house in question has long been a troublesome "party house." It is owned by Sherry Pope but the taxpayer is Cynthia L. Newman of 36534 Falcon Ave., North Branch, MN. It is not a rental on city property records but there is a saying about a creature that looks like a duck, walks like a duck, etcetera.
