2 Stabbed In Apparent Gas Station Fight

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Police are investigating a pair of overnight stabbings after an apparent fight at a Minneapolis gas station.

The incident happened at about 11:15 p.m. Monday at the SuperAmerica on the 5100 block of 34th Avenue South.

Police said they responded to a report of two men fighting with knives either in or near the gas station parking lot.

Officers found a man with cuts to his face. He was questioned and taken to Hennepin County Medical Center.

A bit later, police got a call from a resident nearby of another person stabbed. He, too, was taken to HCMC. Police said he was in critical condition.

Police are not looking for anyone else in connection with the incident.

    another happy friendly city dispute I see.
    imagine the fun that’s about to erupt at the stations when folks start getting upset about paying $5 a gallon at the pump……the friendly dispute will be shooting each other for the final drop off the pump.
    ” good to the last drop ” — Folgers needs to sell that slogan to BP or Holiday. lol

      I doubt this fight was over gasoline…..its just thugs being thugs.

      • JamieinMN

        I agree, Fred.

      • Clint Make My Day

        realize that was case here …. but my point is just wait until they got something to actually fight about….lol
        don’t go into the city much anymore at that. Had a moron pull a knife om me a few years back when he wanted my $$$. I said sure at that …. he got about $18. lol Wasn’t worth a trip to the ER for that I thought. I have a permit to carry but like an idiot I wasn’t that day as it was a Baptism affair
        Spent many a night after that wandering around that area wanting to meet my friend again……..someday it might just happen

          You’ll want to be careful about that, Clint. A good attorney will turn this posting into pre-meditation if you ever DO encounter your friend again. As I’m sure you learned in your permit-to-carry coursework, you’re not allowed to seek out situations like this while exercising a permit to carry.

          • JamieinMN

            He’s not searching. He’s waiting…..and prepared.

            • irregardo

              He clearly wrote that he was “wandering around that area wanting to meet” the friend after also writing that he doesn’t “go into the city much anymore”. If there’s an incident involving Clint’s firearm, the first thing the attorney is going to ask is WHY Clint was there. If a jury believes the reason was deliberate intimidation or entrapment, then Clint will go to prison, making all the rest of us carriers look bad in the meanwhile.

                He was out for a stroll. You ever take a walk?
                And if you are reasonably smart and live in Minneapolis I’d call that being smart, alert,prepared and very wise.
                Been there – do that – always expecting the unexpected. I wouldn’t have it any other way. I value my life

                What we wanna know is WHY you liberals are walking and biking around our neighborhoods, sexual creeps I say… At the same time, you protect street crime in order to secure the Democratic vote.
                No one has to PROVE where they are if they have not commited a crime. Carrying legally for non criminals is as legal as chewing bubblegum, irregardo.

                  It must be hard for you to sleep at night with so much paranoia. Fortunately you have your picture of Joe McCarthy by your bedside to help.

              • JamieinMN

                Maybe he’s Shopppppinnnnnnggggggggg!!!

          • St Paul

  • samuel snead

    Its really ashame how one can tell the change in season by the actions of men.

  • bob

    These are not Men, they are Cowards!

  • I live over SE

    There’s usually an officer at that super america at night, wonder where they were?

    • I live over SE, but not THAT SE

      You know what, I had the wrong SA, forget that comment.

  • Victim Du Jour

    Stabbings are a “Hate Crime” aren’t they?

    • Josh

      They are if the person was being targeted BECAUSE OF sexual orientation, race, religion, or cultural background. Then the violence is both physically damaging, and socially alienating.

  • Thin the heard

    Why can’t they just be DOA so we don’t have to pick up the hospital bill? Take out the trash.

  • Better Area

    That was Minnehaha Park area…

    Yes you know who carries knives, dirty trashy people. I’d pull the race card, but that area, you don’t really have to. LOL

    If someone pulled a knife on me for $ I’d say sure, and open my wallet to NOTHING. Thats one reason I don’t carry cash.

    • KracktUp Kooks

      yep. then again a perp may slice ya cuz ya got nuttin’ too
      life in the big ol’ city
      ya never know if ya gonna see tomorrow anymore

    It’s only going to get worse people. There are far too many who are more than willing to take the easy route in life rather than striving for the right track. And please don’t give me the “Not everyone has that choice.” BS. If you are born in this country, you have a far better foothold on success than anywhere else in the world. And believe it or not, it really doesn’t matter where you come from, what color you are, let alone where you grew up. What matters is how bad you want a better life for you and yours.

    I am with clint on this one, home grown justice. punks assume they have the upper hand, nothing like a bit of maturity to do the job right–when the time is right

  • kate

    knife fight —I say, let them kill each other off, saves us civilized people alot of taxpayer money

  • Anna

    I whole heartedly aggree with Blankenship. It is not lack of opportunity it’s lack of drive to make something of yourself. In this country there is no excuse for “ANY” thugs! Christ, an inmate can get a fabulous edjucation! I say put them all on an island and let God sort them out. Peace please!
