State Representative Fue Lee today is again calling attention to a sharp rise in shootings concentrated in his North Minneapolis district. After another night of violence, Rep. Lee released the following statement.
“Every Minnesotan deserves to be safe in their own neighborhood, but right now many people are experiencing gun violence at unsustainable levels,” said Rep. Lee. “The neighborhoods I represent in North Minneapolis are facing a real emergency. Along with other Minneapolis delegation members, I am organizing meetings with community and neighborhood groups in the coming days to talk about how we move forward. Building off of existing efforts of local leaders, legislators are in communication with city and state officials to identify what resources are needed and how quickly we can provide assistance. This crisis cannot be allowed to continue.”
