People shot fireworks at pedestrians on Minneapolis sidewalks and nearby condos and apartments from their cars yesterday (July 4), according to WCCO.

In a video, cars can be seen racing down South 2nd Street between Portland and Central Avenue in Downtown Minneapolis at about 11:30 p.m. The individuals in the cars launch fireworks out of their windows, dangerously close to multiple passerby and buildings along the road. The person recording the video, perched on a balcony overlooking the street, can be heard saying "they're shooting the people," as sparks fly from the car windows. As the car turns the corner at the end of the street, the individual recording asks if the people below are OK. Immediately after, a large boom erupts from the other end of the street as another vehicle launches fireworks from their car, sending sparks into the air.

The caption of the video reads, "A chaotic and violent 4th of a July for Minneapolis last night. Over a dozen people were shot while fireworks were launched at buildings and people for hours without any police response." The police eventually arrived at around 2 a.m. to disperse the crowd. As of this writing, the Minneapolis Police have not commented on the events. You can watch the full video below.
