Police responded to the shooting at a crowded bar around 12:15 a.m. Sunday at the Seventh Street Truck Park bar. Police said preliminary information indicated several people fired gunshots and found 15 people suffering from gunshot wounds, including one woman in her 20s who ultimately succumbed to her wounds, the Saint Paul Police Department said.
Saint Paul Police Chief Todd Axtell said the suspects are currently in the hospital being treated for injuries. All three will be booked into the Ramsey County jail once they are discharged, the St. Paul Police Department said in a statement on Twitter. They have not yet been charged.
“We have a very busy bar, a lot of people just enjoying themselves and then we had a few individuals who decided to pull out guns and pull the trigger indiscriminately, with no regard for human life,” said police spokesman Steve Linders. “And I think about the poor woman who was just out enjoying herself. One minute she’s dancing, smiling and laughing, and the next she’s dying in friend’s arms. It’s nothing short of a tragedy” (News Nation Now).
“My heart breaks for the woman who was killed, her loved ones and everyone else who was in that bar this morning,” Saint Paul Chief of Police Todd Axtell said in a Sunday statement. “In an instant, they found themselves caught in a hellish situation. I want them to know that we have the best investigators in the country, and we won’t stop until we find the people responsible for this madness. We will do our part to hold them accountable.”
The Saint Paul Police Department’s homicide unit, along with patrol officers, the forensics services unit and others are investigating the incident, as Fox 9 Minneapolis first reported. Authorities are asking anyone with more information about the shooting to contact 651-266-5650 (Fox News).
