RE: Speedway, illegal nightclub at 22nd and Lyndale
Regarding the illegal nightclub at 22nd and Lyndale:
The building manager and their lawyers are still going to court. It is a process through Hennepin County, and myself and licensing are working with them on this.
There was not a shooting at the Speedway. There was a carjacking nearby with possible shots fired (no one injured) and officers were able to arrest 2 suspects near the Speedway.
Myself and licensing met with the Speedway and their team today to conduct a safety walk through. They Speedway is doing many things right and were very open to do the following;
The MPD is going to send directed patrols during the evening when able and continue to work with our specialty teams in the area.
We are scheduling a meeting together with Speedway, licensing and MPD again in January to check in and assess how things are going.
I will send you an update regarding any new information on the problem tenant nearby when we receive it.
Please send any feedback you may have from this.
