MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — No one was hurt when a gunman sprayed rounds toward an emergency room entrance at Hennepin County Medical Center in downtown Minneapolis.
The gunfire erupted after a dispute between two groups of people at the hospital. Bullets shattered windows and hit an SUV during the middle of Tuesday afternoon at the busy intersection.
The Star Tribune (http://strib.mn/1zBsjUy ) reports HCMC immediately went on lockdown as police quickly descended on the area around 3:15 p.m., roped off the crime scene and began looking for suspects.
A pile of 23 shell casings were left scattered on the street about 100 feet from the hospital entrance.
It's the third gun-related incident near the hospital this year.
