MINNEAPOLIS – Police say a man was shot at a homeless encampment in Minneapolis Tuesday morning – the fifth victim of the shooting at or near the encampment in the past month.

The victim was shot around 11:19 a.m. near West 29th Street and Blaisdell Avenue, just north of the Midtown Greenway. Police expect the man to survive.

This attack comes just hours after two separate shootings on Sunday evening. A man was shot approximately 2 miles east of East 29th Street and 16th Avenue South. He is also expected to survive.

Twenty minutes earlier, a mother and her toddler were shot in a vehicle in an alley about three blocks east of Cedar Avenue. Police said the toddler was shot twice in the face. Chief Brian O’Hara says they were likely targeted.

“The shooting of a child is absolutely heinous,” O’Hara said. “It’s outrageous. I’m very grateful that it looks like this child will survive.”

No arrests have been made in any of these cases.
