Two suspects are in custody after a drive-by shooting in Duluth.

According to the Duluth Police Department, officers responded to a report of shots fired at around 8:20 a.m. Tuesday. The shooting happened near the intersection of 15th Avenue East and Superior Street.

One of the suspects, a 21-year-old man, was reportedly in the car with a 25-year-old woman, who was driving. While traveling southbound on 15th Ave East, the 21-year-old saw someone with whom he'd had an "altercation" earlier that day and shot between five and eight rounds.

The victim – also a 21-year-old man – was struck by bullets and taken to a hospital, where he is in a stable condition.

An initial investigation by the DPD indicates the suspect and the victim, and after speaking with witnesses, officers found the suspect at a residence on the 1900 block of Jefferson Street.

The man was arrested on pending charges of attempted 2nd degree murder, reckless discharge of a firearm and being a felon in possession of a firearm.

The driver in the incident was also arrested on pending charges of aiding an offender.
