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.

Madame President you must run again!

As we continue to draw ever closer to the conclusion of the first term of the first female president of Liberia, many Liberians especially in the diaspora are wondering if she is going to run for a second term, in my opinion the very stability of the Liberian nation depends on her decision, she is the only one best qualify, and best positioned to continue leading the battle weary people to progress and prosperity. the president's detractors, including many of the so called senators and representatives on capital hill, have continue to do all in their power to discredit and bring the government to its knees, these greedy,corrupt,blood stained hands killers turn politicians, are like wolf hiding in the dark, just waiting for the right time to pounce, for only in anarchy and chaos, can they survived.

To say its very important the president run again is an understatement, in order to firmly secure the peace for which almost two hundred thousand of our countrymen pay the ultimate sacrifice, in order to continue to enjoy the respect and blessings of the international community, and in order to ensure that the next generations of Liberians never again experience war, she has to run again, it is inevitable, she must run for president, the very destiny of our country future is on the line.
