Another day of gun violence in St. Paul saw a teenager die in a possibly accidental shooting, and a man shot by a U.S. Marshal after he had opened fire on a car full of people.

The fatal shooting happened on the 100 block of Annapolis Street East at 3:30 p.m., where police arrived to fine a teenage male suffering from a gunshot wound.

Citing dispatch audio, the Star Tribune reports the victim and two other juveniles had been playing with a gun when they accidentally shot the male in the torso. The two juveniles were led out of the house in handcuffs.

St. Paul police haven't confirmed this version of events yet, but did say there were several people inside the home at the time of the shooting, who were brought in for questioning.

At this time, no arrests have been made, with the investigation remaining open. The teen's death marks the 28th homicide of the year in St. Paul.

Later on Wednesday, an incident at a Holiday gas station at East 7th Street and Kittson Street saw an armed man reportedly open fire on a car full of people.

A Deputy U.S. Marshall who happened to be at the gas station at the time opened fire, striking the suspect in the shoulder, per the Forum News Service.
