Minneapolis Police: 2 People Shot Near George Floyd Memorial

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO/AP) -- Minneapolis police say two people -- a man and a woman -- were shot Sunday night near the George Floyd memorial.

Police spokesperson John Elder says the victims, both who are believed to be adults, are expected to survive after the shooting near East 38th Street and Chicago Avenue.

They were taken to an area hospital in private vehicles. The investigation is ongoing.
