One dead, multiple suspects in custody after violence erupts outside funeral in north Minneapolis

Bishop Richard Howell previously confirmed for KARE 11 that the shooting took place at Shiloh Temple, where a funeral for Christopher Jones Jr.

MINNEAPOLIS – Minneapolis police spokesman John Elder says one man is dead and another injured after being shot during a funeral near Shiloh Temple International Ministries in northern Minneapolis.

Police said they arrived at the scene around 1 p.m. Friday and learned that a suspicious vehicle had escaped from the scene.

Shortly thereafter, the vehicle description was sent to officers who were able to stop the vehicle in the Cretin Avenue area of ??St. Paul.

The police said that several people had been arrested after the incident, but that they could not provide any information about their identity.

Elder says a man believed to be in his twenties was rushed to the hospital in critical condition, where he later died around 2:30 p.m.

Another person arrived at the North Memorial Medical Center in a private vehicle with non-life threatening gunshot wounds after the shooting.

“The fact that we have shootings during the day … speaks to the audacity of these crimes, the lack of care for what puts people at risk,” said police spokesman John Elder in an evening press conference. “It’s amazing that we could have fired ten, fifteen shots … Bullets don’t just hit the target and fall, they keep going and if they miss they can go a long way.”

Bishop Richard Howell previously confirmed for KARE 11 that the shooting took place near Shiloh Temple, where a funeral for Christopher Jones Jr.

Jones was the man who was fatally shot and killed outside a nightclub in downtown Minneapolis on May 22, during an incident that also claimed the life of pending University of St. Thomas graduate Charlie Johnson.

“We need help from everyone,” Howell said. “This is our community. And if we don’t do anything, who will?”

Howell said there appears to be a dispute inside Shiloh Temple where shots were fired outside. The bishop said the violence could be related to a “rivalry” between some of the funeral attendees.

“These were two friends who happened to know each other and decided to draw their guns and shoot each other,” Howell said.

A criminal complaint against Jawan Contrail Carroll, the man charged with the death of Jones Jr., details how investigators say Carroll is known to them as someone connected to the Tre Tre’s, a violent street gang in northern Minneapolis stands. Prosecutors say Carroll and Jones Jr. had a verbal exchange outside the Monarch nightclub, Jones was beaten and then Carroll drew a gun and opened fire, killing Jones.

It is currently unclear whether the shooting on Friday had anything to do with the fatal incident in late May.

Police are asking anyone with information about the Friday shooting to submit anonymous reports to Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).

MANKATO – There’s not much that Waterville-Elysian-Morristown senior Toryn Richards hasn’t done or experienced in her prep sports career.

Whether she’s knocking down a kill, hitting a 3-pointer, or jumping 10 feet in the air, Richards has had excellent careers in each of her three sports: volleyball, basketball, and track and field.

She was at the state tournament and even came second at the 2019 volleyball tournament, but there is one thing she has not yet done.

“I’m looking for that win … it would mean a lot,” said Richards.

Richards will have that chance next weekend after winning both the pole vault (10-foot-2) and the high jump (5-2) at the Section 2A meet Saturday at Todnem Field.

The first two in each discipline as well as the first two qualify for the national meeting.

It’s hard to find a high school athlete more affected by the coronavirus pandemic than Richards.

After winning the quarter-finals, their 2020 state basketball tournament was canceled just a few hours before the tip in the semi-finals, as the pandemic came to the fore. Then, like all spring athletes, she did not get a track season in 2020.

Richards, who finished seventh and fourth in the pole vault at the 2018 and 2019 state meetings, admits it took some time to get back on track after a year of neglect.

She hasn’t hit her personal record of 11-0 this season, but feels in a good place ahead of the state meeting, her final high school competition, before going next in both volleyball and athletics in the state of Minnesota competes year.

“Even during the quarantine, I was still lifting every day, I was a vaulting man,” said Richards. “I’m really proud of my success and can’t wait to see what my future will bring.”

Among the other top area athletes who competed in West on Saturday was Maple River junior Ethan Fischer.

At the 2019 Class A meeting, Fischer finished second in the discus with a top grade of 158-10, but after an offseason in which he worked tirelessly alone, the 6-8, 265-pounder took it to a whole new level.

“I think I really couldn’t tell what my technique looked like because I didn’t have anyone who could really help me record it on video like a coach would,” Fischer said of his off-season training. “I only related it to a distance and got stronger and stronger.”

After his personal record in the discus at the first meeting of the season with 162: 5, Fischer has risen further.

His hard work culminated in yet another Discus PR Saturday – an impressive 179-8, more than 35 feet from second.

For fishermen, the state plan is simple.

“The goal is to hopefully finish first and do PR in the process,” he said.

Other qualifications

Lauren Dimler from Janesville-Waldorf-Pemberton won the 110 meter hurdles (15.74), 300 hurdles (46.72) and the long jump (17: 1).

Emily Sullivan from Le Sueur-Henderson won the wheelchair 100 dash (33.45), wheelchair 200 dash (1: 22.77) and wheelchair shot put (10-10 1/2).

Lake Crystal Wellcome Memorial / Nicollet’s Emily Lorentz finished second in discus (123-6) and shot put (37-9 3/4). LCWMN’s Grace Moeller finished second in the 1,600 run (5: 19.22).

St. Clair / Immanuel Lutheran’s Madison Daly won the 800 run (2: 25.47) and came second in the pole vault (9-8).

Tri-City United’s 4×800 season finished second (10: 19.26) while LCWMN’s 4×400 season also came in second (4: 17.73).

In the boys’ category, Aidan Gravelle von Loyola won the wheelchair 100 sprint (17.56), wheelchair 1,600 (4: 27.77), wheelchair 200 sprint (33.31) and wheelchair discus (47-11). Loyola’s Simon Morgan won the 110 hurdles (15.61).

Jordan Meyer from the TCU came second over 110 hurdles (15.88) and 300 hurdles (41.92). Teammate Marco Reyes finished second in the 400 sprint (52.23).

Zach Pazdernik of Sibley East was second in the long jump (19-6 1/2), Jackson Burdorf of the Wolverines was second in the shot put (143-7). Sibley East’s 4×800 season (8: 31.64) and 4×400 (3: 36.45) both finished second.

St. James Area’s Caleb Rivera finished second in the 1,600 run (4: 32.39) and won the Saints 4×800 relay (8: 21.76).

In the pole vault, Jacob Cahill (12-7) and Jack Cahill (11-7) from JWP took first and second place.

LSH’s Dylan Novak won the 300 hurdles (41.52) and came second in the 200 sprint (23.57).

Blue Earth Area’s 4×100 season finished second with 45.49.

The state meeting takes place Thursday through Saturday at St. Michael-Albertville High School.

Goats may become exception to Mankato's livestock ban | Local News

Landowners struggling with sea buckthorn and other invasive species could soon have an alternative method of eradication to chemical herbicides and backbreaking labor.

The city of Mankato is considering an exception to its cattle ban within the city limits to allow goats to graze under certain circumstances.

“We’re almost at the end of our experiment in the Land of Memories Park,” said Jeff Johnson, public works director, who was surprised by the work ethic, or at least the appetite, of the rented goats attacking the sea buckthorn infestation on the park’s hillside area. ?It was impressive to watch. The animals were really behind. “

Goettl Grove, a poultry and goat farm in rural St. Peter, chewed the sea buckthorn down to its bare branches and trunks for $ 4,200 on seven hectares of the park.

Mankato had tackled Sea Buckthorn in Sibley Park a few years ago with people, both seasonal workers and Sentence to Serve crews. It was a very difficult job, said Johnson: “It took a lot of effort and a lot of people.”

The Land of Memories demonstration project came about because the city wanted to fight the sea buckthorn without disrupting potential archaeological sites in the area, which was important to the Dakota, who consider the land sacred. The Dakota leaders agreed with what they saw as a more natural solution to the problem.

Not only do goats walk easily into the countryside, their manure does not bring the smell of other livestock with it either.

The animals are brought back in autumn to attack new leaves rising from the now barren sea buckthorn stems. That should be enough to exhaust the reserves of the plants and kill them.

City officials are now considering an option for private property owners to contract with goat farms for targeted grazing, which could be particularly attractive on canyon properties, Johnson said. Not only are these steep slopes difficult or impossible to reach by machines, they are also a poor place to spray chemicals as there is an increased chance of runoff.

Residents have inquired about the possibility of targeted grazing, but ordinances generally prohibit livestock farming within the city limits. The changes under consideration would not allow permanent goat ownership in Mankato, but would require residents to contact a goat dealer for short-term grazing of no more than 30 consecutive days and no more than twice a year.

Strict fencing standards would be required to prevent goats from escaping, and signs would be required explaining that the goats are workhorses, not pets, and provide 24-hour contact information to goat owners in case of problems. There are also provisions that ensure the health and welfare of goats and require liability insurance.

The draft of the guideline is still being finalized and has to be submitted to the planning committee. But first the staff asked the city council in a working session whether the members were open to the possibility.

“We asked some neighborhoods if we wanted to do that …” said City Manager Susan Arntz, who, like Johnson, was impressed with the goats’ performance at Land of Memories. “You are phenomenal at removing sea buckthorn.”

Councilors Karen Foreman, Jenn Melby-Kelley and Mark Frost each said they heard from voters interested in grazing goats on their property. Other council members also agreed to discuss grazing regulations at a future working session. However, a variety of other topics are already queued for the upcoming working sessions, so the goats will have to line up in order not to wait until autumn or winter for their turn.

Goats may become exception to Mankato's livestock ban | Local News

Landowners struggling with sea buckthorn and other invasive species could soon have an alternative method of eradication to chemical herbicides and backbreaking labor.

The city of Mankato is considering an exception to its cattle ban within the city limits to allow goats to graze under certain circumstances.

“We’re almost at the end of our experiment in the Land of Memories Park,” said Jeff Johnson, public works director, who was surprised by the work ethic, or at least the appetite, of the rented goats attacking the sea buckthorn infestation on the park’s hillside area. ?It was impressive to watch. The animals were really behind. “

Goettl Grove, a poultry and goat farm in rural St. Peter, chewed the sea buckthorn down to its bare branches and trunks for $ 4,200 on seven hectares of the park.

On Friday, April 30th and Saturday, May 1st, the District Seven Conference took place for the first time as a virtual conference on Zoom. The states represented were Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota, Nebraska, North and South Dakota, and Wisconsin.

Fremont had four members who served as delegates and alternates. Members present were Marian Brown, Dr. Colleen Dilley, Rhoda Holstine, Jakie Pawling, Dr. Jolene Schauer and Rathje.

Fremont Altrusa has been in partnership with Fremont Middle School’s Urban Tiger Room since mid-2020. Altrusa International has just approved the third grant for the Urban Tiger Room.

During the virtual conference, awards were given to clubs that submitted their literacy and aid projects during the year. Fremont Altrusa received second place in the Mamie L. Bass Service Award for work on the Urban Tiger Room. There were nine applicants with only three winners. Schauer wrote the submission for Fremont.

The District Seven Conference 2022 will be held in Duluth, Minnesota. Club members are encouraged to collect canned tabs found on pop, fruit, vegetable, and soup cans. The Duluth Altrusa Club has asked all clubs to collect the tabs for the recently built Ronald McDonald House in Duluth.

Rhoda Holstine read the emeritus memorial of Vlasta Kavan, who died on April 9, 2021 at the age of 103. Kavan was a 57-year-old member of Fremont Altrusa.

Mankato council open to adding chickens, goats, bees to menu | Local News

MANKATO – Mankato City Council is inclined to try a bit of everything with a long buffet of themes. Council members expressed their appetite for backyard chickens, some grazing goats, and maybe a bit of flavored tobacco. And that’s on top of the potentially heated discussions about police cameras, upgrades to sports and recreational facilities, a major redesign of the Highway 169 corridor through the city, and more. City Manager Susan Arntz recently presented the full list of issues the city is facing from now through September, along with issues that the public has asked the council to consider. “They’re residents, they’re non-profit organizations, they’re companies,” said Arntz of the requests to add to the council’s agenda. When asked about prioritization, various council members endorsed “all of the above”. “Chickens and bees are a request from several West Mankato residents,” said Councilor Jessica Hatanpa, referring to proposed regulation changes to allow chicken coops and beehives in the backyard. No other council members said they heard local buzz about beehives, but some heard an interest in chickens and the use of goats for weed control (see backing story). “Those are the two big ones of the people I’ve talked to,” said Jenn Melby-Kelley. Karen Foreman said her constituents had raised the issue of goat pasture and greater regulation of payday loans, the short-term loans for low-income people who often carry very high interest rates. And Mayor Najwa Massad is ready to try these items, as well as possible restrictions on flavored tobacco – something that Minneapolis, St. Paul, and Duluth imposed on menthol cigarettes. “I think we should at least consider all four,” said Massad. Mark Frost, the longest serving councilor strong in

the chicken fight in the backyard of the city

A decade ago said many of his voters were opposed to urban poultry mainly for noise reasons. “We went through the chickens,” said Frost. However, Councilor Mike Laven sees value in discussing all issues, including re-negotiating poultry. ?A lot of people have moved into the church 10 years ago,? Laven said. “I also know that a lot of people have changed their outlook on life in the last 10 years.” But when it comes to any of these issues, including chickens, Laven suggested that the council be in no rush to cross that street. This summer, more pressing matters can be prioritized and the city budget can take center stage in the fall, while the less timely matters may not be added until next winter. “I don’t really have to have this ready by July, instead of ‘where does it fit into the workflow?'” He said.

Our View: Ethnic studies benefits all students | Editorials

 

Thumbs up to all students, parents, teachers and school administrators who helped Class of the Year 2020 weather a pandemic at the end of the school year and still graduate with consistent or in some cases even better degrees than last year.

The graduation rate of the public schools in Mankato in 2020 increased by a whole percentage point compared to 2019 to 88%. The graduation rate in Minnesota rose only slightly, but set a new record of 84%. Mankato East and West High Schools had a 90 percent graduation rate, while the alternative Central High School scored 45 percent.

The graduation gap between white and black students was the best news. With a completion rate of 75% among black students, the gap was closed by 6 percentage points in 2020. This is good progress on an important issue.

Given the adversity the pandemic brought, it is good to see such success. It shows the resilience of those who work in education.

Heat and humidity

Thumbs down on this miserable hot weather so early in the summer that weighs on people, plants and energy savings.

In this record run, producers in the region lose some of their vegetables on the 10-day stretch of 90-degree plus days. Even with additional watering, it’s too hot too soon for many crops, including peas that burn and radishes that germinate prematurely. Newly planted trees, bushes and turf are also felled.

The city of Mankato has put irrigation restrictions in place to conserve water as the hot, dry weather persists. The city pumped more than 8.2 million gallons on Wednesday, almost twice as much as it did on May 9, when the maximum temperature was 63 degrees.

Despite falling humidity and falling high temperatures forecast for this weekend, the relief doesn’t mean we’ll be out of the woods in the long run. Scientists have been warning us for years: These extreme weather patterns are due to global warming.

As we experience the June days pass with a much stronger intensity than we are used to, we should keep in mind that reducing our own energy consumption and saving as much as possible will have a greater effect if we all participate.

Share the vaccination premium

Thumbs up for the Commitment of the Group of Seven – the economic powerhouses of the developed world – this week to provide at least a billion doses of coronavirus vaccines to the less economically fortunate of the planet.

As outlined ahead of the G7 meeting in England, the United States, with a large supply of vaccines and declining vaccination demand, will provide half of the promised doses.

This is much less of a sacrifice by the United States than it appears. The short shelf life of vaccines approved for use in this country makes this a suggestion for use or loss. Better to use the vaccines elsewhere than to let them spoil here on the shelves.

For some G7 members, the allocation of cans for the international effort is indeed a sacrifice. But a global pandemic won’t stop being a pandemic as long as the virus thrives somewhere. Persistent hotspots around the world increase the possibility of variants that could defeat today’s vaccines.

So, yes, the United States will benefit from vaccinating Africa, South America, and Asia. It would also benefit if your own anti-vaccine people rolled up their sleeves and took the sting.

Suffrage

Thumbs down to Republicans in Congress for blocking legislation for full and fair access to voting.

The bill is needed as a number of states with Republican lawmakers and governors are rushing to pass bills that put a number of barriers up for voters. Your motivation is clear: you want to keep as many minorities and disadvantaged voters as possible away from the polls.

Democrats in Congress must continue to work to negotiate a bill that would find enough support to pass.

Rox Pitching did the rest. Minot State pitcher RJ Martinez allowed three hits and hit seven in six innings, while Noah Myhre pitched the final three innings to complete the shutout.

Charlie Rhee had two hits to spearhead the huskies who will try to get back at the Waterloo Bucks at 6:35 p.m. on Saturday.
