Three People Shot Outside Minnesota State Fair Main Gate

Police are investigating a shooting that occurred as the Minnesota State Fair was closing.

According to Fox 9, police received reports shortly after 10 p.m. that a pedestrian was struck by a car on Snelling Avenue at the main gate of the fairgrounds. A 19-year-old woman was found lying on the ground with grave injuries.

Through investigation, police learned a fight broke out shortly before the woman was hit by a car. The driver stopped but then drove a short distance away and called 911 when bystanders began kicking and hitting his car.

Shortly after, several shots were fired as police redirected traffic. They ran towards where the shots were fired and found a 20-year-old man suffering from gunshot wounds to the stomach/pelvic region. Another 20-year-old arrived at a hospital with a gunshot wound to his hand, and another 18-year-old man arrived at the hospital with a gunshot wound to his shoulder.

No arrests have been made and police have not confirmed whether the car crash and the shootings are related.
