I am sorry to hear the tragedy. Did she call 911? If not, please ask her to do it NOW.

She may need time to stay around that area for the police to further investigate this. Here are local women shelters that could help her temporary:

She can also call 211 to get reference to other local resources.

She definitely needs to work with the police so hopefully the perprator can get caught. I think so too she should go to a shelter where she can have access to resources. Once she is cleared to leave by the police she or you can contact airlines/ bus companies and ask if they would give her a plane ticket. Many do in these situations. The shelter too may be able to help her with getting back to Minnesota. You mentioned you are homeless too? Where in Minnesota are you? I would like to give you feedback on places there where you and your friend can go. I hope it all works out. Please keep me posted.
