Son-in-law: Minn. businessman killed in shooting

MINNEAPOLIS — A family member says the owner of a sign-making business in Minneapolis was among the four who died when a gunman opened fire.

Chad Blumen says Reuven Rahamim was shot to death in the Thursday attack at Accent Signage Systems Inc. Rahamim was Blumen's father-in-law. In a Friday statement to The Associated Press, Blumen says other members of the family died, but he provided no details

Police spokesman Sgt. Stephen McCarty said the gunman killed four people and injured four more, three men critically, before turning the gun on himself. Police have not released the gunman's identity or motive.

Dozens of police squad cars and SWAT officers swarmed the residential neighborhood on the city's north side after an employee called 911 around 4:30 p.m. to say shots had been fired.
