Community leaders unsettled by sudden local violence.

This weekend there were multiple shootings in the metro area. Alisha Neeley,17, was fatally shot standing outside a house Saturday night, The Start Tribune reported.

Two teenage boys are recovering from being shot on the Metro Transit bus in north Minneapolis Saturday night, The Pioneer Press said.

Shortly after Neeley's shooting Sunday morning, two men were shot and wounded in north Minneapolis, the Star Tribune reported.

Two other shootings on Sunday include a man found wounded in an apartment complex at 2312 Blaisdell Av. S. and a man in his 20s shot in the back at W. Broadway and Bryant Avenue N., the Star Tribune said.

Police do not know if the violence is connected, but the sudden series of events has unsettled community leaders and authorities.
