Over the weekend, a mass shooting occurred in Minneapolis, leading to some deaths, including that of one of the shooters. The other gunman involved in the incident has since been arrested.


On Saturday evening, May 22, 2021, a mass shooting happened in downtown Minneapolis. According to a Minneapolis Police Department spokesman, the one suspect died while another was now in custody.

John Elder, the Minneapolis Police Department, public information officer, said Jowan Contrail Carroll, 24, was being held at Hennepin County Adult Detention Center. No charges have yet been laid against him.

Elder revealed that the department had until Tuesday noon to issue charges against Carroll. He said authorities were looking at charging the suspect with probable murder.

The shooting occurred outside Monarch nightclub when at around 1:59 a.m., police officers working close to the area heard gunshot sounds in the 300 block of North First Avenue in Minneapolis.


Officers ran to the site and found an "exceptionally chaotic scene." Two people were left dead, including one of the gunmen, while eight others were injured during the scuffle.

Seven of the injured people received non-life-threatening wounds, while one other person was left in critical condition. All ten victims were adults, five females and five males.

The two suspects got into an argument, and both pulled out guns and started shooting at each other. Charlie Johnson, the dead suspect, was a recent graduate of the University of St. Thomas School of Engineering.


In March 2021, the police had their hands full when three separate shootings occurred on a Saturday. Three people ended up in custody, while another suspect was still at large after the Virginia Beach shootings.

At least two people were killed, and eight others were wounded. One of the shootings involved police, and a police officer was among those wounded in the incidents.

Mass shootings were quite rife between this past Friday and Sunday, according to reports. At least eleven people were left dead while sixty-none others were injured over the weekend.


All in all, twelve mass shootings occurred over the past three days, according to “CNN.” This information was gathered from an analysis of data from local media, the Gun Violence Archive (GVA), and police reports.

The shootings took place across Illinois, Ohio, New Jersey, Texas, South Carolina, Indiana, Virginia, and Minnesota. A mass shooting was defined as four or more people killed or wounded by gunfire, minus the shooter.
