Report: Police arrest suspect in fatal downtown Minneapolis shooting

The shooting left two people dead and eight injured.

The investigation into this weekend's nightclub shooting has led Minneapolis police to a suspect. 

Eight people were injured and two killed as a result of the attack, which happened early Saturday morning near Monarch Minneapolis on N 1st Ave.

The suspect was arrested Saturday afternoon. Per KSTP, he's a 23-year-old man from Bloomington. 

Police say he was one of the two shooters, with the other shooter identified as one of the deceased, the Star Tribune notes. 

BringMeTheNews does not typically name suspects until they're formally charged with a crime.

Investigators believe there was an argument that led up to the shooting, and that there's no longer a threat to the community.
