Two juveniles have been arrested in the shooting death of 5-year-old Nizzel George, the north Minneapolis boy who was fatally struck by a bullet fired from outside into his home, police said Friday.
One of the suspects was booked on suspicion of murder and the other for weapons possession.
The boy was shot once in the back Tuesday morning at the home in the 4500 block of Bryant Avenue N.
Nizzel died at North Memorial Medical Center in Robbinsdale shortly after he was shot as he slept on a couch in his grandmother's house. Police later that day indicated that they had a strong lead, saying an ongoing dispute involving people in Nizzel's house and another group had played a role in the shooting.
