Police: Man Shot In Head During Uptown Robbery
"A 25-year-old man is in critical condition at the Hennepin County Medical Center after a Saturday night shooting in Uptown.
The man was walking with his mother, sister and her friend after they finished dinner in a restaurant at Hennepin Avenue and Lake Street.
According to police, two men approached the group about 10 p.m. at 31st Street and Girard Avenue South. The suspects allegedly stole the mother's purse. Then, even though the victims didn't put up a fight, the suspects allegedly fired two shots, hitting the man in the head.
Kris Arenson, an inspector from the Minneapolis Police Department said, "Usually when the purse is given up, or even if the purse isn't given up, we haven't had any (people) that have been shot."
Police said the suspects immediately fled the scene, jumped into a white car and headed south on Girard Avenue.
Police gave vague descriptions of the suspects, only saying they are men between 17 years old and 22 years old and were both wearing dark clothing." - WCCO (03/20/06)

Man Shot In Uptown Dies
"A man shot in the head in the Uptown area of Minneapolis on Saturday night died late Sunday night at Hennepin County Medical Center.
Michael Zebuhr, 25, was a Ph.D. student at Clemson University in South Carolina. He was enrolled in the bioengineering program. He dreamed of working at NASA someday.
He was from Buckhannon, W.Va. and was a 2005 graduate of Davis and Elkins College, a private Presbyterian School in Elkins, W.Va. Officials there said he received B.S. degrees there in chemistry and math. They said he was a student leader as well as a member of the school's ski team.
Friends and family said Zebuhr also loved mountain biking, math and science.
Police said Zebuhr was walking to a parked car with family members, when robbers approached them and demanded his mother's purse. She gave it to the gunmen without any resistance. One of the men then shot Zebuhr.
Lt. Lee Edwards of the Minneapolis Police Department said, "Within a half hour of the incident, we had already had six homicide investigators or six officers with homicide experience already working this thing."
Police are hoping for a break in the case. Several security cameras were pointed in the direction where the shooting happened and police are now reviewing those tapes.

Uptown Residents Fight Back After Shooting
"Minneapolis Police are reviewing videotape from security cameras after a shooting in the Uptown neighborhood over the weekend.
Michael Zebuhr, 25, was shot in the head in the 3100 block of Girard Avenue around 10 p.m. Saturday.
Police said on Saturday night, Zebuhr was walking to a parked car with family members, when robbers approached them and demanded his mother's purse. She gave it to the gunmen without any resistance.
One gunman shot Zebuhr twice in the head. Police said the shooting appeared to be cold-blooded and unprovoked.
Uptown's usual upbeat atmosphere remains on edge with no suspects in the case.
She said that although the shooting is a tragedy, it was very unusual and similar crimes rarely happen in that area.
Devens and other neighbors said the rising rate in burglaries and robberies in the area has given them concern.
According to officials, burglary is up 14 percent and robbery is up 43 percent compared to one year ago." - WCCO (03/21/06)
