Minneapolis on Edge After Five Are Shot

MINNEAPOLIS (CN) - Hundreds of people marched in Minneapolis Tuesday after five people were shot near the 4th Police Precinct Monday night by masked gunmen that Black Lives Matter protesters called white supremacists.

Black Lives Matter said in its Facebook page that the gunmen attacked their week-old camp "in an act of domestic terrorism."

The Minneapolis Police Department said in a statement: "At 10:41 p.m. on Monday night, Minneapolis Police responded to 1400 Morgan Avenue North on the sound of multiple shots fired in the area of 1400 Morgan Avenue North. Shortly after, numerous 911 calls came in reporting that 5 people had been shot at 14th and Morgan. This is located one block north of the Minneapolis Police Department's 4th Precinct."

The Minneapolis PD said three gunshot victims were taken to North Memorial Medical Center with non-life threatening injuries. Two victims were taken to Hennepin County Medical Center with non-life threatening injuries.

Police have arrested two suspects: a 23-year-old man in Bloomington, Minn., and a 32-year-old man in south Minneapolis.

Hundreds of protesters marched Tuesday afternoon as the sun set from the 4th Police Precinct to City Hall.
