Two men were injured Tuesday night in a drive-by shooting on a busy north Minneapolis street during a memorial for a slain Brooklyn Park man.
The shooting happened a little after 7 p.m. near W. Broadway and Bryant Avenue N., said Sgt. Steve McCarty, a spokesman for Minneapolis police.
The two men who were shot were taken to North Memorial Medical Center in Robbinsdale with noncritical injuries, McCarty said. No arrests have been made.
The men were part of a group of about 30 people who gathered outside on a sidewalk on W. Broadway in memory of Haywood Eaton, who was shot and killed during a fight in the parking lot of the nearby Burger King in September 2009. His mother, Stephanie Eaton, said her son would have been 22 years old Tuesday.
Were out here lighting candles and setting up balloons when a little red car came by and started shooting, she said.
As they drove off, whoever fired the shots didnt shout anything, Eaton said.
But she did.
I called them cowards, Eaton said.

Let me go out on a limb here ... If 0bamao had a son ...
Feral Amish as I suspected!
The Democrats would rather go after law abiding gun owners then dare to go after gangbangers. In every major city it’s the same thing.
.....when a little red car came by and started shooting, she said.
I suspect Bond, James Bond. Who else has a car that can shoot?
Yeah. Check this out. A lawmaker wants to toughen penalties for evil doers and the “community” is against it because it will “unfairly” target the people that NEED targeting.
“Vigil” or “gang gathering”? The drive-by makes me suspect that the “vigil” was seen as a good opportunity by a rival gang to score some points.
Did they get anything at the drive-thru?
Not the first time that there has been trouble at a vigil put on by this mother.
Says a lot about the liberal thought process, doesn’t it. In their minds, the fear armed, law-abiding citizens more than feral urban street dwellers, ‘gangstas, and mexican gang-bangers. Actions speak volumes. I think the largest liberal fear is when law abiding citizens start shooting back, because the liberals know that at that point, they have lost, and worse, they have nowhere to run or hide.
Nobody is going to tell me these people are “equal” to me. I refuse to believe that uncivilized, barbaric, 3rd world cretins resemble me in any way.
Doggone those violent Minnesota gangs of ethnic Norwegians vs. Swedes up there. Cold weather seems to bring out the worst in them Nordic thugs and their violent ways. (’
