Shootings in the Twin Cities- related?
Three shootings took place this weekend in the twin cities. Two of them were drive-by shootings, and the third was a woman shot to death in her own home according to the Star Tribune.
The first shooting was of a 14-year-old boy in Minneapolis Saturday. The second was of 18-year-old Gustavo Ortega in Richfield later on Saturday, says the Star Tribune.
Authorities are investigating a possible link between the two drive-by shootings, which were both of Hispanic male teenagers, within hours of each other, reports the Star Tribune.
The third shooting took place at about 1 a.m. Sunday, where a woman was fatally shot in Minneapolis. Police said that this case does not appear to be related to the two drive-by shootings. A 28-year-old man was arrested in the woman’s death, says the Star Tribune.
The Pioneer Press reports that a second woman was sent to the hospital with a non-life threatening injury. The Pioneer Press also reports that police say no suspects are in custody.
The Pioneer Press reports that police have not released the names or ages of the drive-by shootings Saturday.
