A trag­ic mass shoot­ing unfold­ed in Min­neapo­lis, Min­neso­ta on Thurs­day, May 31st, 2024, claim­ing the lives of a police offi­cer and two civil­ians. The inci­dent occurred around 5:30 pm in the city’s Whit­ti­er neigh­bor­hood when offi­cers respond­ed to calls of gun­fire erupt­ing at an apart­ment complex.

Hero­ic Offi­cer Succumbs

The fall¬≠en offi¬≠cer, iden¬≠ti¬≠fied as 28-year-old Jamal Mitchell, had served with the Min¬≠neapo¬≠lis Police Depart¬≠ment for a year and a half. Described as a coura¬≠geous and kind soul, Offi¬≠cer Mitchell was pre¬≠vi¬≠ous¬≠ly hailed for sav¬≠ing an elder¬≠ly cou¬≠ple from a fire.

Mul­ti­ple Casualties

In addi­tion to Offi­cer Mitchell, two civil­ians per­ished in the shoot­ing. Anoth­er offi­cer was hos­pi­tal­ized, and sev­er­al bystanders sus­tained injuries after being met with gun­fire upon arrival. The uniden­ti­fied sus­pect was also killed.

Com­mu­ni­ty in Mourning

‚ÄúThis offi¬≠cer made the ulti¬≠mate sac¬≠ri¬≠fice pro¬≠tect¬≠ing oth¬≠ers,‚ÄĚ stat¬≠ed Min¬≠neapo¬≠lis May¬≠or Jacob Frey. ‚ÄúHis brav¬≠ery and ser¬≠vice will for¬≠ev¬≠er be etched in the mem¬≠o¬≠ry of our city.‚ÄĚ
