One person is dead and six have been injured after a shooting at a Minneapolis house show on Friday night, MPR News reports. Police responded to the shooting, which happened at DIY venue Nudieland, around 10 PM, and say that a person or persons approached via the alley. During a Saturday news conference, Minneapolis Police Chief Brian O’Hara said, “We believe one of the persons was being targeted by a shooter. We know two suspects ran from the scene, we can’t confirm there were two shooters though.”
KSTP reports that of the six people transported to the hospital with injuries, one man’s were potentially life-threatening.
Police have not revealed the identity of the man who died, but a GoFundMe identifies him as August Golden. One GoFundMe, organized by Sanam Sadeghi, is raising money for August’s partner, Caitlin Angelica. It reads:
For those who don’t know, there was a mass shooting in Minneapolis at a punk show. This senseless act of violence was committed by strangers, and we lost August. Let’s come together to support Caitlin as she processes this unfathomable loss. Caitlin is constantly taking care of others, and if you’ve ever met her, she’s probably made you laugh, made you a meal, or been supportive of your creative project. She’s given so much to the community, it’s her turn to be supported.
Caitlin will need help with bills, rent, groceries. As more details become clear I will update the numbers.
Hold each other tight and love one another.
A second GoFundMe is titled “Support for victims of Nudieland shooting in Mpls,” and reads:
This fund will be distributed among the victims who were shot and injured during Friday’s horrific tragedy at Nudieland in Minneapolis; the residents of Nudieland who lost their beloved roommate and friend August Golden; August’s family and loved ones; and others affected.
Money will go toward medical bills, lost wages, rent, food and other basic needs. We will keep this page updated.
Thank you community. We love you Southside.
There’s also a Meal Train for Caitlin.
