Two campaign staffers for Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omars challenger, Lacy Johnson, were reportedly shot Monday in Minneapolis.
One victim, a 17-year-old man, died at the scene, MPR News reported. The other victim was transported to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
A suspect was arrested Thursday morning in connection with the crime after a police pursuit, the Minneapolis Police Department told the Daily Caller.
The two victims were standing outside of a service station Monday afternoon when they were approached and shot by the suspect or suspects, who then fled on foot, a preliminary police investigation found according to the Minneapolis Police Department.
The identities of the victims will be released in the coming days, the Minneapolis Police Department said in a press release.
It is shocking and unnecessary acts of violence like this that prove why change is needed now more than ever in our community, Johnson said, adding that the shooting didnt occur during any campaign events and that they believe it has no connection to the campaign.
Politics, Mogadishu style?
Where either of the victims white?
Would have made them stand out in that hellhole neighborhood; and maybe excite the impulses of a low-impulse-control individual.
omar is involved with this
If only they had enough police around...if only.
Why is the victim a “17-year-old man” when those victims the media supports are labeled a “17-year-old youth”?
Either way, I am saddened by the loss but I hope the shooting victim is Black so we can watch BLM completely ignore him. If they do, I hope Minnesotans confront BLM and yell “say his name”, “say his name” at them just to make clear their hypocrisy.
BTW, good work by the otherwise AWOL Minneapolis police to catch someone.
More Trump supporters have been shot and killed than blacks by cops.
An Ilhan Wind blew their way.
naw just a coinkydence.
Math is a symptom of white supremacy, you know.
Citizens must learn to obey their masters without question.
Hell MSM, do your job and report this
They have thier own street thug army just like the sh##hole back home
All thru The FIVE yesterday, the scroll was that Ilham Omar was R-Minn.....REPUBLICAN!!! FOX is hiring some REALLY STUPID people!!
Probably a Freudian slip - they know it’s only our side of the aisle that has any actual men on it....the closest they got is aging juveniles.
So now there is direct campaign on camapaign political violence with a pandemice and people are being told to not vote absentee or by mail but stand in a line with a bunch of potential sick people and targets.
Yeah, I’ll be voting by mail, or not at all, thank you
"Black Hawk Down" took place in Mogadishu. Before long, the action and scenes in this movie will resemble Minneapolis
