MINNEAPOLIS — Authorities have identified the victims of two separate fatal shootings in north Minneapolis.

Twenty-six-year-old Iesha Lanell Wiley was the woman killed Friday afternoon after an altercation outside a strip mall. No arrests have been announced in that case.

Forty-year-old Roderick Antonio Evans was fatally shot in the chest outside a residence on Thursday. Three people are in custody.

Both victims are from Minneapolis.

Police are also investigating the non-fatal shooting of an innocent bystander outside a bar in downtown Minneapolis. Police say two groups of younger people got into an argument and several shots were fired around 8 p.m. Saturday. A man sitting on the patio outside Lyon’s Pub was wounded in the leg. The light rail lines were shut down for an hour as police detained five people.
