MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Minneapolis police say a man has died in a shooting after a confrontation on a city bus.
A police spokesman says officers found one man dead when they responded to the shooting Thursday night in north Minneapolis. They haven't released any details about the man.
Police say the shooting appears to have stemmed from an earlier confrontation between two people on a Metro Transit bus.
They say another shooting in the area left one person injured about 20 minutes later. The two incidents don't appear related.
The Star Tribune reports the shootings come as police prepare to increase patrols in some high-crime areas. City officials earlier this week announced a $300,000 plan to pay overtime for eight police officers and one supervisor. The new patrols begin Friday.
