MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Police have charged a 19-year-old with attempted murder for seriously injuring three women in a north Minneapolis shooting.

The Hennepin County attorney’s office says Delonte Ahshone Thomas of Minneapolis has been arrested in connection with the July 9 shooting in which three women were shot 25 times. All three women survived.

Thomas faces three counts of attempted second-degree murder and three counts of first-degree assault.

Thomas is being held in the Hennepin County jail. Online jail records did not indicate an attorney.

The shooting occurred a day after Minneapolis Police Chief Janee Harteau and Mayor Betsy Hodges visited several neighborhoods hit hard by recent violence.
