In Minneapolis, Minnesota police are investigating after a shooting overnight left one person dead and 11 others injured.  It happened around 12:37 a.m., in what’s know as the Uptown area of the city.

According to police, several people started out on foot shooting and mid-2900 block of Hennepin Ave. S. and moved north.

All of the survivors had non-life threatening injuries

Minneapolis Police Chief Medaria Arradondo  says there is not one in custody at this point; he called the shooting “tragic and senseless.”

Arradondo says despite the senselessness of the shooting, “humanity” was observed at the scene.

“We saw officers and community members rushing in to aid victims, to assist EMS personnel. We saw humanity last night and that truly inspires me. And it says that hope is in this city and will remain in this city. And we have to build on that.”
