Child, 2 Adults Shot at Liberian Soccer Match, AGAIN

BROOKLYN CENTER, Minn. -- A 8-year-old boy and two adults were shot at a Liberian soccer league game Thursday night in Brooklyn Center.

About 200 people were at the soccer match, organized as a reunion for Liberians living in the Twin Cities. The shooting happened around 8:00 p.m. near the Osseo School District's Adult Education Center.

Witnesses say the shootings happened so fast and they were in shock watching violence unfold at a reunion for Twin Cities Liberians. One witness said a child was beaten up just before a shot was fired across the field.

Lt. Scott Nadeau said the child and one of the adults appeared to be innocent bystanders. None of the injuries appear to be life-threatening. Classes were going on at the education center, and staff members put the building on lock down after they learned of the shooting.

Two people including the shooter, Beyan Massaqui were taken into custody.

going to any Liberian social function in the Twin cities these days is a matter of Life and death, it disgust me to see my people behaving badly like this, are we going to be the laughing stock of the African community? these rebels will be the ruin of us all, if something is not done urgently.
