Police have arrested a suspect in the weekend shooting outside a Maple Grove movie theater that left two people with gunshot wounds.
Officers from several police departments converged on an area near 53rd Avenue North and Morgan Avenue North in Minneapolis Monday afternoon and did a house-to-house search for the suspect, 23-year-old Cortez Quincy Foster of Brooklyn Park, KSTP reports.
Foster eventually came out of a residence in the area and was arrested, according to FOX 9.
He had been charged via warrant with two counts of second-degree attempted murder in connection with the Saturday night shooting, which took place in the parking lot outside the AMC theater in the Arbor Lakes shopping center in Maple Grove.
According to the warrant, the two victims told police they met Foster there and got into a car with him, WCCO reports. Foster then demanded money from the two and pulled a gun on them.
Foster shot the two as they tried to get away, according to the warrant. One was shot in the neck and the other in the abdomen.
The victims said they were going to drive to a nearby hospital. But a 911 dispatcher told them to pull over and wait for police. Officers found them at a Wendy’s in Brooklyn Park and arranged for them to be taken to a hospital. Both are expected to survive.
No one inside the theater was hurt. In fact, police told WCCO that moviegoers likely didn’t know that a shooting had occurred.
