BROOKLYN PARK, Minn. — Brooklyn Park police say a 17-year-old is dead and another 17-year-old was injured in a shooting at an apartment complex Friday night.
According to a police press release, the Minnesota State Patrol responded to reports of a shooting victim inside a vehicle at Interstate 94 and 53rd Avenue North. When deputies arrived, they located the vehicle and found the teen males suffering from apparent gunshot wounds.
Both teens were transported to the hospital, where one of them later died. The other victim suffered a non-life-threatening gunshot wound.
Brooklyn Park police later learned the victims fled the scene of the shooting at an apartment complex on the 8400 block of Regent Avenue North and drove to where they were discovered.
Investigators say a 17-year-old male has been arrested for aiding and abetting murder and is being held at the Hennepin County Juvenile Detention Center.
While a police spokesperson said in a statement that authorities are still looking for other potential suspects, he added that there is no known danger to the public.
