Drive-by shooter injures two during memorial for murder victim

Posted: Updated:

A quiet vigil for a murder victim turned violent when a drive-by shooter injured two men Tuesday night in Minneapolis.

About 30 people were gathered on a sidewalk on W. Broadway and Bryant Avenue N. when witnesses say shots were fired from a small red car driving by.

Two men were taken to North Memorial with non-life threatening injuries, Sgt. Steve McCarty, a spokesman for Minneapolis police said.

The memorial was held for Brooklyn Park man Haywood Eaton, who was shot and killed in 2010.

Denell Ray Malone Jr. was sentenced to 30 years in prison for Eaton's death in 2010. Malone told the judge he was responding to news of a fight involving Eaton in the Burger King parking lot, the Star Tribune said. Malone claimed Eaton had shot him the year before, and Malone ran to the parking lot and shot Eaton four times.

No suspects have been arrested in Tuesday's shooting.
