Fund set up for families of store shooting victims

A memorial fund is being set up for the immediate families of three people killed at a Somali-run corner grocery store in south Minneapolis.

The three victims died Wednesday in a shooting at Seward Market and Halal Meat. Their funerals were held Friday.

Police were still searching for suspects Friday.

The memorial fund was created by Seward Redesign and Seward Neighborhood Group. Local businesses will have collection jars, and donations can also be dropped off or sent to the office of Redesign and the local Wells Fargo branch.
