Two men shot during 30-40 person fight in downtown Minneapolis

Two men were shot in the fight, and police are looking for information.

A huge brawl broke out after bar close in downtown Minneapolis early Saturday.

Around 2:11 a.m., police responded to the 400 block of 3rd Avenue North in the Warehouse District after getting a report of 30 to 40 people fighting, according to a news release from the police department.

Two men sustained gunshot wounds in the fight, and one officer is being investigated for discharging his weapon.

The incident

The release says that when officers got there, they heard gunshots being fired and saw several people running from the scene.

Officers first located an adult male who had been shot in the ankle – he was sent to Hennepin County Medical Center by paramedics, where he was treated for a non-life threatening gunshot wound. Officers later learned that another adult male shooting victim had been dropped off at HCMC with a non-life threatening gunshot wound to his arm.

A second call of shots was fired in the area, and more officers were called to the scene to manage the large crowd and search for an armed suspect. A total of 32 officers responded to the incident, The Pioneer Press reported.

One officer arriving to the scene in his squad car was hit by another vehicle. He fired his gun once, hitting the side of the vehicle. No one was hurt, and the other driver was arrested on suspicion of DWI.

Witnesses were taken to the city hall to be questioned, but besides the DWI, no arrests have been made, the Pioneer Press noted.

Now the police department is asking the anyone with information to come forward. You can text a tip to 847411 (TIP411) – enter MPD, a space, and then the information.

Police say these text messages are assigned a tip number, and the department has no way of identifying the source of the information. You may also call the MPD TIP Line at 612-692-TIPS (8477).

The Minneapolis Police Department’s Homicide Unit and Internal Affairs Unit are investigating the shootings.
