University of Minnesota-Minneapolis ramps up police presence after violent firework attacks
The University of Minnesota is ramping up weekend public safety measures at its Minneapolis campus after students were attacked with fireworks over Halloween weekend.
A total of four separate incidents were reported to Minneapolis police between Saturday evening and Sunday morning, Minneapolis Police Department (MPD) spokesperson Garrett Parten told Fox News Digital.
At least three teenaged females between the ages of 18 and 19 were injured in one firecracker incident on the 1600 block of University Avenue SE, Parten said.
The school sent out a public safety alert when the incidents occurred, according to Crime Watch, but it did not share any public statements about the attacks. UMN told Fox News Digital that the attacks occurred off-campus, and MPD is handling an investigation into the incidents.
MPD also continues to investigate the number of suspects involved. Parten said police received varying reports of “anywhere between” eight and 20 perpetrators.
Apparent video footage of the incident posted to Twitter shows a large group of people throwing a firework into a building.
Witnesses told CBS Minneapolis that a group of masked suspects ignited and threw the fireworks into fraternity house yards and the pizza restaurant near Dinkytown. One student, Kyle Garrigan, described the attack at Frank & Andrea’s Pizza on 4th Street as “kind of a sensory overload.”
