From the MPD listserv:
Three young black males were seen beating and kicking a young white male last night around 2 am near 8th and S St last night on the sidewalk of the 1800 block of S. We heard the disturbance outside, I opened our front door and screamed at them to stop. One of the assailants aimed a gun at me as the victim fled on foot and the other suspects piled into a waiting car. The police responded quickly, although everyone had already left the seen.
No idea about how the incident started, but if anyone has any information about this crime the police (and the unknown victim, no doubt) would likely appreciate it.
Terrifying. There have been no responses by MPD or others as of 10am. I’ll be sure to update if/when more info becomes available.
