Community Responds to Weekend Violence

Minneapolis community leaders are concerned about a rash of shootings over the weekend that left a teenager dead, according to the Star Tribune.
17-year-old Alisha Neeley was killed by gunfire outside a north Minneapolis party.
Four young men were wounded in three other separate incidents on Saturday and Sunday.
Renewed gang activity from members released from jail could be the cause of Neeley's death, according to K.G. Wilson, president of Hope Ministries and City Council member Don Samuels.
Minneapolis police said in a Minnesota Public Radio story that the shootings are "unacceptable," but not necessarily related to each other.
