2 men killed in second Minnesota shooting outside a funeral
ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) – Two men were killed and three other people were injured in a second shooting outside gatherings to mourn loved ones in St. Paul this weekend.
The St. Paul Police Department said all five people were shot around 5 p.m. Saturday during an altercation after a celebration-of-life event. One of the people injured was in critical condition, while the injuries to the other two weren’t considered life-threatening.
No arrests were made immediately. This shooting came one day after three teens were shot and injured at a funeral reception for a high school student fatally stabbed at school two weeks earlier. Minnesota Gov. Tim Walz called the weekend gun violence unacceptable in a tweet.
