Timely Notice 1/13/2019: Aggravated Assault on Minneapolis Campus

TIMELY NOTICE BULLETIN

Aggravated Assault

1/13/19

In compliance with the “Timely Notice” provision of the federal Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act of 1998 Augsburg University Department of Public Safety is giving notice of a concerning incident that occurred on 21st Ave S near 6th St S on or near the Minneapolis Campus.

REPORTED OFFENSE:  Aggravated Assault

On 1/12/2019 at 11:29 p.m., Public Safety received a report from an individual that a firearm was discharged at them from a vehicle driving on 21st Ave S near 6th St S.  The victim, who is not a student and was not injured, stated they were walking near 6th St S on 21st Ave S when a white vehicle, possibly a Ford compact with tinted windows, was driving north on 21st Ave S when the victim heard 2 gunshots.  The victim stated the vehicle performed a U-turn on 21st Ave S and they heard more gunshots. No one was injured during the incident. Public Safety staff and Minneapolis Police responded to the report, immediately patrolling the area and identified a suspect vehicle, which Minneapolis Police investigated and cleared as not involved in the incident.  At this time, the Department of Public Safety and Minneapolis Police believe this to be a targeted attack and not a random incident.

STATUS:  The Department of Public Safety and Minneapolis Police are currently investigating this incident. Anyone who may have information regarding this incident is urged to contact MPD or Augsburg DPS at 612-330-1717.

SAFETY TIPS:

  • Be aware of your surroundings
  • If you believe you are being followed or are in immediate danger, get to a public place and call Public Safety or 911
  • Call Public Safety for 24/7 escorts on campus, and escorts to approved off campus locations from dusk until dawn
  • Call Public Safety immediately if you see any suspicious behavior on campus

Please report any and all concerns that may impact our campus community. If You See Something – Say Something (x1717). We also encourage you to utilize the resources available on our website: www.augsburg.edu/dps and in the CampusShield safety app (available for free download on Google Play and iTunes app store).

Augsburg University believes that physical descriptors alone are not a valid reason to profile or cast suspicion on any individual.  When physical descriptors are included in communication to the Augsburg community, it is done so because they may reasonably assist in identifying the perpetrator of the incident.  Augsburg University uses perceived race and gender descriptors that are provided about a suspect only when additional characteristics (beyond clothing) are also available. Such descriptors are used in an attempt to provide the campus community with important information.  However, the University recognizes that race and gender are personal identity attributes that cannot always be accurately perceived by others, and that any reported information may not be accurate.
