3 in custody after Fourth Precinct shooting

MINNEAPOLIS - Minneapolis Police now have three men in custody connected to the shooting at the Fourth Precinct Monday night where five people were hit by gunfire.

Police say a 23-year-old white man was taken into custody in Bloomington, around 11:20 a.m. on Tuesday.

Then, around noon, a second person -- a 32-year-old Hispanic man -- was taken into custody in south Minneapolis. Police have since released him after they discovered he was not at the shooting scene.

Finally, around 2:30 p.m., two white men, ages 21 and 26, turned themselves into police. They are currently being interviewed by investigators.

The names of all three men will be released after they are charged.

Police say they continue to look for additional suspects -- anyone with information is urged to contact the Minneapolis Police at 612-692-8477.

Five people suffered non-life threatening injuries in the shooting that occurred just before 10:45 p.m. on Monday on the 1400 block of Morgan Avenue North.

Protesters have remained at the Fourth Precinct for more than a week, calling for justice in the death of 24-year-old Jamar Clark, who was shot by police after an altercation.

The Hennepin County Attorney released a statement Tuesday, clarifying their role in the investigation. They say once the BCA and the FBI's investigation is complete, they will review the case file and present the case to a grand jury for possible criminal charges against the officers involved.

Until that time, they will not be making any comments about the case.
