Police in Blaine are asking the public to come forward with information that could help figure out who shot at a motorcyclist on Monday evening.
According to Blaine police, officers were sent to the Kwik Trip located at Naples Street NE and Lake Drive – just east of Interstate 35W – around 5:30 p.m. on a report of a motorcyclist being shot at by a passing motorist.
"The victim reported that she was riding her motorcycle eastbound on Lake Drive from Lexington Avenue when she became involved in a road rage incident," police said in a release.
The woman stated that a man driving a white, early 2000s Volkswagen Passat with "heavy passenger side damage" pulled alongside her and fired a single shot at her. The bullet struck the gas tank of the motorcycle, with the shooter then speeding away from the scene.
According to police, the woman described the shooter as being "middle aged, white, heavyset, with brown hair, and a scruffy beard."
Anyone with information about the possible shooter and suspect vehicle are urged to call Blaine PD at 763-427-1212.
