One man killed, one injured in drive-by shooting Saturday

One man was killed and another wounded in a drive-by shooting in Minneapolis on Saturday.

The Pioneer Press released very little information in relation to the incident. According to the Pioneer Press, “in a news release, Sgt. Jesse Garcia III says the victims' car was stopped at an intersection around 3 a.m. Saturday when the other car pulled up and someone fired shots.�

The victims’ car eventually crashed into a private home. The Pioneer Press did not reveal any further details on the shooting and its consequences.

The Star Tribune, on the other hand, managed to create a fuller story by interviewing the resident of the home into which the car crashed. According to the Star Tribune, “Michael Allen, 30, of Minneapolis said Saturday he had come by the house where his father lives on the way home from a night out with friends and discovered the home surrounded by police tape and his father's prized Cadillac destroyed by the white Ford Bronco that had slammed into it.�

These specifics create an image in the mind of the reader that better convey the incident in its entirety. The Star Tribune also interviewed Allen’s neighbors to ask about a separate shooting that took place in a nearby apartment complex on Wednesday. The newspaper reported that police said the two shootings, though close in proximity, were unrelated.
