The initial MPD investigation reveals that families from two separate houses became involved in a dispute. That dispute quickly escalated into a physical fight. During the fight, a suspect pulled a gun and fired several gunshots.

A 46-year-old man was struck by the gunfire and died from his injuries. A 13-year-old girl was also struck by gunfire. She was taken to a hospital where she was treated for a non-life threatening injury.

    They are protecting all right from unruly thugs. When the dumbass black lives matter idiots will understand that the police job is to keep order, and if the only way is to kill the lawless parasite, then let be it!
