A teenager was shot in the back Friday night a block away from a peace rally in north Minneapolis that about 1,500 people attended. As the rally at 25th and Humboldt Avs. N. came to a close just before 9 p.m., a fight broke out at 25th and Girard and a 16-year-old male was shot, said police Lt. Greg Reinhardt.
The boy was taken to North Memorial Medical Center in Robbinsdale with non-life-threatening injures.
Organizers were distressed that the rally ended on a violent note. "For all of us, we understood that that's the reason we had come," said organizer Sondra Hollinger-Samuels.

That'll teach him to hold a "God Bless Our Troops" sign at a peace rally.
Aren't they always? Yet these "peaceful" rallies almost always end up with someone bleeding. Doesn't speak very highly of the organizers' management skills.
Not enough info even in the original article for me to make an insipid comment on this. Pass.
They're all "Hate Parades" for people smart enough to walk but too stupid to bath.
hyphenators are usually a tip off they're haters.
The peace rally worked. If he had been at the peace rally instead of a block away he wouldn't have been shot. That's what we need, more peace rallies.
"Organizers were distressed that the rally ended on a violent note. "
Maybe they need more candles for the vigil.
Yeah, my first thought when reading this was "Peace rally? In America?"
