Killed – Fuad Ali (Minneapolis, MN)

Fuad Ali

A Minneapolis businessman was shot in south Minneapolis early Wednesday and died about 12 hours later at Hennepin County Medical Center — leaving many in the Somali community shaken and angered.

Slain was Fuad Ali, 31, a Somali-American who owned two banquet halls and was beloved by the Somali arts community, particularly singers and other entertainers, said Abdirizak Bihi, director of the Somali Education and Social Advocacy Center.

“The younger generation loved him,” Bihi said. “He gave them space to breathe. This is a big loss for the second generation [of Somali immigrants], which is the majority of our community right now.”

Police responded at 12:50 a.m. to a “shots fired” call in the 2600 block of Pleasant Avenue S., where officers found a man lying in the street with a gunshot wound.

Ali was being dropped off in the area of Pillsbury Avenue between 26th and 27th streets, near his residence, when he was shot, Bihi said. Family members told Bihi that they didn’t believe he had been robbed
