Police officers responded to reports of a shooting in Dinkytown late Monday night on March 29.

One person was confirmed dead and one person was injured and hospitalized with non-life-threatening injuries following a shooting in Dinkytown late Monday night, according to a Minneapolis Police Department spokesperson.

Law enforcement, which included MPD and UMPD officers, responded to reports of gunfire on the 400 block of 13th Avenue Southeast shortly after 11 p.m. Monday night, according to MPD spokesperson John Elder. Both victims were males. Neither are a University student, staff or faculty member, per a SAFE-U alert.

Police officers retrieved three guns outside of Kollege Klub, a popular Dinkytown bar. There is no active threat, and MPD is not looking for additional suspects, Elder said.

Portions of 13th Avenue Southeast, near popular student apartments and hangouts like Burrito Loco and Frank From Philly and Andrea Pizza, were blocked off with police tape as of 11:45 p.m. The shooting took place outside.

An all-campus safety alert notified students of the shooting shortly after midnight on Tuesday, with an updated alert sent out the following morning.

One witness near the scene, a female who lives in the area, said she saw a black car pull up near the Kollege Klub. A male hopped in the vehicle before the car sped off, she said.

MPD is investigating the shooting, and both UMPD and MPD will assign increased patrol to the area.

    There’s no contradiction in some students feeling unsafe around some UMPD personnel and yet not wanting to totally defund the police. The fact is you have a straw man fallacy going on here as the usual criticisms of some police methods does not go to the extreme of claiming “they cause all of our problems.” No one I have ever encountered in real life or online has said criminals and in particular, violent criminals, should not be punished. Who on earth are you talking about?

    According to the students they don’t feel safe around UMPD. Let’s let the criminals take over security and run wild. You reap what you sow, kids. You blamed the cops and said they cause all of our problems and you want them defunded. But what about the criminals? Didn’t think this all the way through did ya?
