2 dead, 1 hospitalized in separate Minnesota water incidents

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Authorities say two people drowned and a child who was found unresponsive in a pool was hospitalized in three separate incidents in Minnesota on Saturday.

The Washington County Sheriff’s Office says 46-year-old Chandra Mohan Laghuvaram, of Plymouth, was swimming in the St. Croix River when he went under for reasons that aren’t clear. The Washington County Fire and Rescue found Laghuvaram in about 8 feet of water and brought him to shore, where medics unsuccessfully tried to revive him.

Stearns County officials say an an 18-year-old male drowned after jumping into about 35 feet of water at the Quarry Park and Nature Preserve in Waite Park. A joint dive team from Stearns and Benton counties responded, along with the Waite Park fire and rescue. The name of the victim wasn’t released pending notification of family, the Star Tribune reported.

Anoka County authorities say a child was airlifted to Children’s Minnesota Hospital in Minneapolis on Saturday evening after being found unresponsive in a pond at Lions Park in the city of Ham Lake. The condition of the child was unknown, according to the sheriff’s officials.

1 dead following shooting outside Minneapolis church

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — One man was fatally shot and another wounded outside a funeral at a north Minneapolis church.

The Star Tribune reports officers responded at 12:41 p.m. Friday to a report of shots fired outside Shiloh Temple.

Police spokesman John Elder said the shooter fled, but officers later stopped the suspect vehicle near Cretin Avenue on Interstate 94 and arrested several people.

One man in his 20s was hospitalized in critical condition and died about two hours later, Elder said.

The newspaper said his death brings the number of 2021 homicides in Minneapolis to 40.

It’s unclear if the suspects and victims knew each other.

The shootings took place just after the funeral for Christopher Robert Jones Jr., 24, of Brooklyn Park, one of two men killed outside the Monarch nightclub in downtown Minneapolis on May 22. Eight people were wounded in that incident.
