ST. CLOUD, Minn. — Police are investigating after four people, including a 15-year-old boy, were shot after an argument between two groups led to an "exchange of gunfire" Wednesday night in St. Cloud.

The other three gunshot victims, all adult males, range in age from 19 to 21 years.

Officials say the shooting occurred just after 5:45 p.m. Wednesday in an alley near 6th Avenue and 11th Street South.
