Are the 46th Street exits on 35W now considered to be Richfield? That would be sub-urban encroachment. I'm just afraid I will wake up one fine morning living in Blaine.

Haha I suppose the lede wasn't as clear as it could've been. The shooting incident was in Richfield, and the arrests on the Kingfield/Regina line.
