MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Minneapolis Police are investigating after a stray bullet hit an adult man in the buttocks Saturday night in a Minneapolis park near the Augsburg College campus.

Police said the bullet was fired from several blocks away by an unknown shooter. No arrests have been made, but police said they don’t think the shooter was affiliated with Augsburg College.

The shooting ended an Augsburg Indigenous Student Association and American Indian Powwow event that was taking place at the Si Medley Gymnasium on 23rd Avenue South in Minneapolis. Police said the victim was in attendance at the powwow.

The victim was taken to the Hennepin County Medical Center and treated for non-life threatening injuries.

Police will continue to investigate the shooting.
