Eric Yzaguirre, pictured on the right, was wounded a couple days ago in a South Minneapolis shooting. The shooting incident was covered in mainstream media but at this time I am unaware of any other media source besides Johnny Northside which has the names of the wounded and further details, including a fascinating possible motive...
Here is coverage from KSTP, click here.
Here is coverage from Twin Cities Dot Com, click here.
The word I am getting from a credible source is that convicted drug runners Eric and Jerome Yzaguirre were in the car, as well as a guy named Ledell Williams. As of two days ago I was told Williams is "basically dead" and "on life support with no hope for recovery." The situation with Williams was so bleak that a homicide investigation unit was apparently working the case even while Williams was still at the hospital. Unknown if Williams has been disconnected from life support or still clings to the illusion of life.
Eric Yzaguirre was hit in the chest but will recover. Jerome Yzaguirre was in the vehicle but not hit. This is pretty much the pattern with Jerome. His siblings do the cool stuff and Jerome is sort of an add on to the main story.
In the wake of the shooting, police demanded information from this blogger about a possible motive based on emails that had been received by this blogger and (per the request of the source or sources) forwarded to police with identifying information deleted. There is an incredibly interesting possible motive behind the shooting but due to the police investigation and this blogger's rather messy involvement through the emails, I am not telling that story quite yet.
Oh. It will be told.
Just not yet.
The photo above also show's Eric's fraternal twin, Nicole Yzaguirre, who was facing charges in a forged check scheme until January of this year, when online court records show she was granted a pretrial diversion. These messed up Yzaguirre siblings are the children of Terry Yzaguirre, who is behind the Mpls Mirror online publication which has been known to take many cheap shots at the North Minneapolis neighborhood revitalization movement but recently has been slipping into a dark hole of its own self-created misery. The Yzaguirres are frequent clients of Jill Clark, the loony attorney who was recently suspended for mental health issues. (God, seems like I've got a document around here somewhere about Clark's mental health issues...well, maybe another time...)
In my opinion, Terry Yzaguirre should pay more attention to putting her own house in order before one of her children actually DIES from chronically bad lifestyle choices which, no doubt, are textbook examples of apples not falling far from the tree.
