MINNEAPOLIS — Police in Minneapolis were investigating a shooting on the city’s north side Monday that left four people wounded, just one day after 12 people were shot in a different neighborhood.

Police spokesman John Elder said officers were called to a neighborhood about 2 miles (3.22 kilometers) northwest of downtown in the most recent shooting, just after 4 p.m. Monday. Elder said all four people suffered injuries that appeared non-life-threatening, but he had no other immediate details.

The violence came just a day after one man died and 11 were hurt when gunfire broke out just after midnight Sunday in the city’s Uptown neighborhood, a nightlife hub of bars, restaurants and retail about 3 miles (4.83 kilometers) south of downtown. Police said there appeared to be more than one shooter.

Elder said earlier Monday that police hadn’t made any arrests yet in the Sunday shooting.

Police Chief Medaria Arradondo on Sunday called the Uptown shooting “tragic and senseless violence” and called a recent uptick in violent crime a public health crisis.
