    Two Minnesota National Guardsmen have been injured following a drive-by shooting that occurred in Minneapolis during the early morning hours Sunday.
    According to Minnesota National Guard spokesman Lt. Colonel Scott Hawks, a team of Minnesota National Guardsmen and Minneapolis police officers were fired at by a light colored SUV at around 4:15 a.m. as they provided neighborhood security near Penn Avenue and Broadway.
    Hawkins noted that one National Guard member was taken to a local hospital to receive treatment for lacerations from shattered glass, while the other was left with "superficial injuries."
    "I am relieved to know none of our Guardsmen were seriously injured," Major General Shawn Manke, the Adjutant General of the Minnesota National Guard, said in a statement. "This event highlights the volatility and tension in our communities right now. I ask for peace as we work through this difficult time."
    The Minnesota National Guard has been activated in the area as part of Operation Safety Net, a joint effort between the Minneapolis Police Department, Hennepin County Sheriff's Office, the State of Minnesota and local jurisdictions in order to protect people, freedom of speech and property during the Derek Chauvin trial and aftermath of the police involved shooting of Daunte Wright in Brooklyn Center during a traffic stop.

    They are getting really brave attacking the National Guard....This won't end well if they're caught trying this again

    If they were carrying live rounds you would have thought they would have returned fire.....

    I bet you're right, I'd be surprised if they let Nat'l Guardsmen out in that area with live ammunition. It's a sad sad world we live in.
