The community shocked by two shot in Cedar-Riverside

Two men were shot on Jan. 25 evening outside the community center in South Minneapolis' Cedar-Riverside neighborhood, but both of them were survived.
Tony Wagner, president of Pillsbury United Communities, told the Star Tribune, that the two men were standing near the entrance of the community center and a car just drove by and shot them.
Minneapolis police spokesman Sgt. William Palmer told the Minnesota Daily that the two men were sent to Hennepin County Medical Center. One was shit in torso, and the other was shot in the leg. But they are both expected to live.
The Star Tribune reported that the police had made an arrest at the late evening.
This security of this community is a concern since it is not a first time having a shoot incident. According to the Star Tribune, on Sept. 22, 2008, Ahmed Nur Ali, a 20-year-old student at Augsburg College who had been volunteering at Brian Coyle, was shot and killed.
The Star Tribune reported that after the shooting, about 25 people gathered across the street to watch police work. Mahboub, who was in the area when the shooting occurred, told the Minnesota Daily that security is something they are going to demand.
