MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Two people are in the hospital following a shooting near downtown Minneapolis Wednesday evening.
Officers were on the 1500 block of Park Avenue South at around 6:45 p.m. when they got another call that someone was shot in the same area. Police say the officers weren’t able to find a victim, but talked to several witnesses in the area.
Later that evening, two adults arrived at Hennepin County Medical Center — just a few blocks away — requiring treatment for gunshot wounds. Police say a man was shot in his stomach and is in critical condition, while a woman suffered a non-life threatening gunshot wound to her arm.
