It happened Saturday evening on Silver Bell Rd.

One person is injured and another is in custody following a shooting in Eagan.

It happened Saturday evening, shortly before 7 p.m., at a Marathon gas station on the 1900 block of Silver Bell Rd, where police say officers responded to reports of "a victim suffering from a gunshot."

According to a news release from the Eagan Police Department, the suspect left in a vehicle, crashed a short time later and fled on foot. However, officers soon located and arrested the suspect and recovered a weapon.

The victim was taken to the hospital, but there's no word yet on their current condition.
