Mijamin Forest identified as shooting homicide victim


Mijamin Forest, a 29-year-old man from Brooklyn Park, has been identified as the victim of a South Minneapolis homicide, the Star Tribune reports.

Police were called to the 3200 block of Blaisdell Avenue South around 8 p.m. on Friday night, where they found Forest shot outside of an apartment building. Forest was declared dead at the scene.

No arrests have been made in the case, which has been turned over to the Minneapolis Police Homicide Unit.


One neighborhood resident told the Star Tribune that she'd called police about trouble at the same apartment building only days before the shooting.

"There are fights there all the time," Mary Van Briesen said.

Police are taking tips on Forest's homicide at the TIPS line, at 612-692-8477.
