Three dead in south Minneapolis shooting Friday morning

The GleanA terrible start to the day in Minneapolis. The Star Tribune’s Liz Sawyer, Libor Jany and David Chanen report: “A man and two teenagers are dead following a shooting early Friday morning in south Minneapolis in what police are describing as a domestic homicide. … Police say that a man and a boy and girl in their early teens were shot and killed and that an adult female was significantly wounded. She was taken to Hennepin County Medical Center, where her condition is unknown. … Police say that they are not looking for suspects and that there is no threat to the public, but would not say whether the deaths were a murder-suicide. It was likely domestic, police said.”

Dozens! The Brainerd Dispatch’s Zach Kayser writes: “A multi-hour speech at a Brainerd church that mocked and decried the religion of Islam and its adherents drew dozens of interested attendees—and devolved into a shouting match as some of them called out the speaker for bigotry. … The presentation was put on inside Oak Street Chapel by Usama Dakdok, who leads The Straight Way Ministry and travels the Midwest, lecturing about what he feels are the encroaching dangers of Islam.”

Coming in 2017. MPR’s Euan Kerr writes: “The Walker Art Center will host what’s being described as the most significant exhibit of Cuban art in the U.S. in more than 70 years. … ‘Adios Utopia: Dreams and Deceptions in Cuban Art since 1950’ will only be shown at the Walker and Houston’s Museum of Fine Art. Walker executive director Olga Viso says the exhibit shows how Cuban hopes raised by the revolution changed over time.”

And speaking of which, SB Nation’s Rene’ Kennedy reports: “Another award was announced by the league today, as Sylvia Fowles was named Defensive Player of the Year. This is the third time in her career she has won the award, as she won in 2011 and 2013. … The Minnesota Lynx are one of the top-rated defensive teams in the league, so it is no surprise that one of their players would win defensive player of the year.”
