Man shot in Kingfield

An 18-year old man was shot in the torso around 8 p.m. July 30 at Martin Luther King Park in Kingfield.

He was transported to Hennepin County Medical Center with non-life threatening injuries.

The man, whose name has not been released, was carrying a gun and fled to a nearby home on the 4100 block of Blaisdell Ave. with another 18-year-old male who was also shot at but not hit, said Lt. Marie Przynski of the Minneapolis Police Department’s 5th Precinct. A stray bullet damaged a third person’s car, Przynski said.

About 20 people were at the park when the shooting happened, she said. Many fled the scene by foot or in vehicles after the incident.

No arrests have been made, but police are looking for two suspects. One is a black male age 18-19, about 5-feet-7-inches tall with a medium build and short black hair in a fade cut. The other is a black male age 19, about 6-feet tall with a dark birthmark or scar covering a portion of his face.

Park Police increased their presence in the park Monday and Tuesday.
