Four shot outside north Minneapolis liquor store

Officials say two men and two women suffered "potentially life-threatening injuries."

MINNEAPOLIS — Four people were transported to hospitals with "potentially life-threatening" injuries after a shooting Friday night outside a north Minneapolis liquor store.

Minneapolis Police say they believe the shooting happened after a fight broke out inside Merwin Liquors Minneapolis on West Broadway. The fight continued into the parking lot, where two men and two women were shot. 

Officers were called to the scene just after 7 p.m. and rendered medical aid before the four people were transported by ambulance.

Police say no arrests have been made. According to dispatch records, officers have responded to seven incidents in the area this year. Officials say 11 people have been shot in those seven incidents.

KARE 11 reached out to Merwin Liquors and received the following statement: 

We are investigating this incident and do not want to respond until we feel that we have a full understanding of the facts.

Sanctuary Covenant Church is next door to Merwin Liquors. 

The church's sister organization Love MPLS states on the organization's website that it has been working to purchase the Merwin Liquors property since August 2021. 

The website also states the City of Minneapolis has approved Love MPLS to receive a $700,000 city loan, should Love MPLS be able to close on the Merwin property.
