Police: Man Killed In ‘Chaotic’ Minnesota Shooting


Police in St. Paul city of the US state of Minnesota said one man is dead and at least one other individual was injured following a shooting Sunday night at a large gathering on the city’s east side.

Steve Linders, a spokesperson for the St. Paul Police Department, said the shooting happened near Mounds Park and as many as 300 people were reportedly in the area at the time bullets were flying. He described the scene as “chaotic.”

“We don’t know for sure how many shots were fired, who shot whom, or how many victims there are,” Linders said. “We are working diligently to figure out why this senseless act of violence happened.”

He said officers found the one male victim after responding to a call of shots fired around 7:30 pm Paramedics pronounced the man dead at the scene. He was not identified.

So far, no arrests have been made, CBS News reported.

Linders said investigators are talking with witnesses, some of which reported that a family gathering was taking place before the shooting occurred.
