Duluth police respond to Friday morning shooting

Duluth police said no injuries have been reported following their response to a shooting early Friday morning.

It happened in the area of ​​North 41st Avenue West and West 5th Street around 7:00 a.m.

According to DPD, the witnesses involved observed the people entering a house in the area. A short time later, they left the house and were arrested by officers without incident. The people involved are believed to have known each other.

“Too often, firearms in the hands of criminals are involved in incidents that turn violent. This shooting is a perfect example of that,” said Police Chief Mike Ceynowa. “We want to ensure that members of the Duluth community are safe in our neighborhoods, and we will do everything we can to ensure the well-being of everyone who lives, works and plays here.”

There is currently no danger to the public and investigations are ongoing.

“Gun violence of any kind is unacceptable in this community,” said Mayor Roger Reinert. “Western Duluth is family-friendly, safe and neighborly. This incident in no way reflects the values ​​of Western Duluth, nor is it typical of Western Duluth. Our law enforcement officers will use every tool at their disposal to ensure the safety of our community.”
