Boy, 12, Becomes 2nd Child Shot In North Minneapolis Drive-By Shootings Within 7 Days

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) -- A 12-year-old boy was shot in an apparent road rage incident in north Minneapolis Monday evening.

Police say it happened at about 7:15 p.m. on the 4900 block of Humboldt Avenue North. A father was driving with his wife and three kids when he noticed they were being tailgated. At the intersection, the aggressive driver pulled up alongside them and opened fire.

The father immediately drove his son to a local hospital, where he's being treated for injuries described as non-life threatening. It is not clear where the boy was struck. The mother and two other children were not hurt.

Police say they have a description of the vehicle and the suspect, but no arrests have been made as of late Monday evening.

This is the second time in less than a week that a boy was injured in a north Minneapolis drive-by shooting. A 7-year-old boy was shot in the foot last Tuesday night while he and his father were leaving a market off North Penn and Lowry avenues.
