Four people were shot at a convenience store in north Minneapolis Wednesday night.

The shooting happened at the Super USA on Fremont Avenue North around 6 p.m., according to the Minneapolis Police Department. When officers arrived at the scene, they found two men who had been shot.

One man was taken into surgery and was listed in critical condition Wednesday night. The other man suffered a non-life threatening gunshot wound to his abdomen.

While officers were at the hospital, a third man showed up with a gunshot wound to his arm. Then, later Wednesday a fourth man arrived at the hospital with a gunshot wound to his hand.

Police have no information about a suspect that they can release at this time.

Officers from the Fourth Precinct plan to be out in the neighborhood on Thursday to talk with the community. Anyone who has information is encouraged to talk to the officers. People can also text their tip anonymously to 847411 – all you have to do is enter MPD, a space, then the information you have.

"These text messages are assigned a tip number and the police department has no way of identifying the source of the information," the police department says.

As of March 6, 33 people had been shot in Minneapolis this year, the most recent police department crime statistics show. Twenty-one of those incidents happened in the Fourth Precinct, which includes north Minneapolis.
