Authorities ID One Victim In South Minneapolis Double Homicide.


Community leaders have identified one of two people killed in a triple shooting in the Seward neighborhood late Sunday as Abdulahi Awuni.

Awuni, a local spoken word artist who worked at a neighborhood recreation center, was found shot in a car, along with two other men, parked near the Franklin Housing Cooperative apartments at E. Franklin and 23rd Avenue S., the leaders said.

Officers came across the car after responding to a shots fired call about 7:45 p.m. A second man was pronounced dead at the scene, while the third victim was taken to an area hospital with serious but non-life-threatening injuries.

A police spokesman said Sunday that several suspects were seen fleeing the scene on foot.

No arrests have been announced.
