Man gravely wounded by gunfire outside south Minneapolis gas station
An altercation in a south Minneapolis gas station parking lot Tuesday afternoon prompted gunfire that gravely wounded a man, authorities said.
The violence erupted about 12:50 p.m. outside a Speedway at 25th Street and Bloomington Avenue S., according to police. No arrests have been made.
Police spokesman John Elder termed the mans wounds as grave.
Two groups of people were involved in a verbal confrontation before fighting began among them, Elder said.
Elder said that while shootings anywhere in the city are treated with seriousness by police, there is additional concern when they occur in an area where so many people are passersby.
