Drive-by shooting leaves one dead in quiet south Minneapolis neighborhood

:::: UPDATE, February 25 :::: The victim has been identified as 35-year-old Adrian Carr of St. Louis Park.

A man was killed in a drive-by shooting on the 3400 block of Snelling Avenue South in south Minneapolis just before 4 p.m. yesterday.

The as-of-yet unidentified victim was found inside a vehicle. (Minneapolis Police Department spokesman John Elder told us he was in his mid-30s.) The suspect drove away from the scene in a dark-colored SUV and remains on the loose.

Asked this morning about where the MPD's investigation is at, Elder told us, "Until we're able to formally identify the victim, it's tough for us to be able to ascertain the scenario behind this."

"Officers canvassed the area and interviewed several persons," a statement from the MPD says. "They are following up on available leads."

An official at the Hennepin County Medical Examiner's Office told us they're not sure when the identity of the victim will be released.

Elder added that it's unusual for an incident of this sort to happen in this particular part of south Minneapolis, which is just east of the Hiawatha LRT line.

"We don't get a lot of calls over there," he said.

Moved out of the area not too long ago. Longfellow and Seward are nice on the whole, but those few blocks around there are fairly rough. There are some low income rental situations, as was stated before - although Digitalprotocol is trolling, know-nothing scumbag who clearly whiles away his time getting in arguments so he can feel smug. 


Hate to say it, but it's like anywhere else - government assisted blacks, even in one building in an otherwise nice, quiet area, are going to up your muder rate. It's what they do. #lookedatnorthsidelately

I heard the shots.  There were a LOT.  Over ten for sure. Considering the rate of fire, there were probably multiple shooters.

City Pages needs a "Don't Like" like most other comment sections.

So many idiots with nothing constructive to say!

@flarughbaeb  im not trolling you fucking idiot...who the fuck says "whiles away"?


i simply pointed drug deals exist in all cities and communities and they are mobile and stationary. 


I am not about to accept the idea from some dumb commenter, who is prob a wisco transplant ( or some other hick), that JUST RECENTLY that area has exploded with "mobile drug deals" 


wtf are you people thinking...that is the INNER CITY


shut the fuck up and smoke some rocks


FYI  govt assisted "blacks" make all their money off dumb white people 


go figure

@huhh I’m glad to see you’re not letting your education get in the way of your ignorance, assuming you do have an education.  You might want to change your name to @duhh.  These type of comments are unnecessary, and hurtful to those who knew him.  My heart is heavy.

@digitalprotocol  I live in Edina across the street from a middle school, next a synagogue and a Catholic church and kitty corner from a police precinct and there are mobile drug deals going down all the time. I forgot to mention the Jehovahs Witness temple. 

ummm
ummm

@digitalprotocol  particularly in south minneapolis. if you've been getting your alerts from your precinct you'd know that. twat. 

ummm
ummm

@digitalprotocol  i hope you get shot in a car parked on a quiet south minneapolis street

@digitalprotocol

You clearly know nothing about Longfellow.  I agree with @ummm.  "Go eat a dick you silly troll. My god you are a twat. "

@ummm you live in LOW income rental area


what do you expect, seems like you should move if its so problematic


what do you care about people buying drugs anyways?

ummm
ummm

@digitalprotocol @ummm  No, here it is particularly problematic. There was no mobile drug dealing of note before, now it is commonplace. So commonplace that enough residents in the neighborhood called the cops, who issued an alert that includes a notice to be on the look out for mobile drug dealing and what to do if you suspect you are witnessing a mobile drug deal. So go eat a dick you silly troll. My god you are a twat.

@ummm  its a KNOWN OCCURRENCE everywhere, not just in your shithole neighborhood


you are not special 

ummm
ummm

@kamgrn @ummm @huhh  I am sorry you lost a friend, I truly am. I wasn't trying to imply that your friend was caught up in a drug deal. I was just trying to convey the fact that random losers cruse through this (my) neighborhood, and bring their BS low life lifestyle with them. This sort of crime infuriates me. Again, I am deeply sorry for your loss. 

ummm
ummm

@digitalprotocol @ummm  rely? huh? i was just making the point that mobile drug dealing is a known occurrence in this area, so well-know that the percent sends alerts out about it. mobile drug dealing=addicts=drug dealers=criminals who might shoot you as you go door to door spreading the word of Christ

@ummm @huhhTHIS WAS NOT A RESULT OF A DRUG DEAL.  You've got a lot of nerve to call someone, who is defending his friend, a twat.  Look in the mirror.  This is an excellent time for you to become a missing person.

Interesting username, btw, seems to be quite fitting of your comments.  GTOH with your ignorance.

@ummm  oh ya, you mean just like Edina, Eden Prairie, Hopkins, Plymouth, SLP and everywhere else you fucking idiot.


my alerts from my precinct!!! HAHAHAHAHH


what kind of awful existence are you living in that you rely on police alerts?

@WhiteMatt Only the one behind the gun knows why he was shot.  Drug deal gone bad? no.  Banger?  no.  I am by no means trying to attack you.  I have justification for my comments in his defense.  Do you have justification for your comments?  Or are they derived from ignorance and assumptions?  Did you know him?  I realize many people make assumptions, but really, please keep them to yourself.

@WhiteMatt  Interesting you should ask, aside from traffic violations, nothing.  Ill refrain from stooping to your level of ignorance, and keep my comments to myself.
