Police Release Surveillance Images In Roseville Pawn Shop Shooting

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Police have released surveillance images of the suspects and their vehicle in a Roseville pawn shop shooting and robbery that took place Monday night.

According to police, officers responded to a call of a shooting at the Pawn America on the 1700 block of Rice Street at about 5:44 p.m.

Upon their arrival, police were told multiple gun rounds had been fired and a store employee had been shot in the leg.

While one robber threatened workers and customers with the gun, the other one smashed a display case and stole jewelry.

The two men drove off, going west bound on Larpenteur Avenue, in a four-door, Black Chevy Cobalt. The car had no front license plate, and police think it’s from out-of-state.
