North Minneapolis gunshots send driver up power pole [PHOTOS]
The picture at the top of this post shows the precarious situation a car ended up in after gunshots rang out in the area of Queen Avenue and Golden Valley Road in north Minneapolis yesterday evening.
"Shots were fired at the car, the driver swerved and went up the power pole, causing a power outage," Minneapolis Police Department spokesman John Elder tells us.
The driver wasn't injured. No suspects are in custody.

Elder says the incident remains under investigation, but the driver hasn't been very cooperative.
Asked whether the driver was targeted or shot at randomly, Elder said, "I don't know... the individual was not very cooperative."
