On November 12, 2010 just after 9 p.m. Guadalupe Galeno-Hernandez was standing on the steps at 3400 Chicago Avenue South when a man firing a handgun from a vehicle struck Guadalupe in the neck. Guadalupe, it is believed, was not the intended target. She was seriously injured and later determined to be paralyzed as a result of this incident. She still lies in the hospital.
The investigation by the Minneapolis Police Department’s Robbery/Assault Unit has reached a point where fresh information is needed to help solve this crime and prosecute those responsible. As a result the Minneapolis Police Department has called upon its long time partner, Crime Stoppers of Minnesota, to assist in solving this case.
