MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – Four people were shot just after closing time for bars and nightclubs in downtown Minneapolis, Minneapolis Police said.

Officers believe the shootings happened within a few minutes of each other just after 2 a.m. Monday, when bars in the area began to let out.

Police were patrolling the Warehouse District when they heard gunshots and saw people running. Police say the shootings were the result of two separate arguments.

The shootings occurred near First Avenue and Fourth Street. A 21-year-old is in critical condition after being shot in the head and a 19-year-old was shot in the torso. A 23-year-old man was also shot in a nearby parking lot.

Police say the shootings do not appear to be random.

Officers blocked off the streets to conduct an investigation early Monday morning. They are not sure at this point whether the shootings are related.

There are surveillance cameras in the area. Police will look at the video to see just what happened and who may be responsible.
