2 dead, 8 others injured, police say

A shooting in downtown Minneapolis left two men dead and eight other people injured early Saturday, police say.

The three men and five women injured were transported to local hospitals, where one is in critical condition, according to a series of tweets from the Minneapolis Police Department. The other wounded people had non-life-threatening injuries.

Police say there is no active threat, according to a tweet.

Police spokesperson John Elder told KMSP-TV the shooting resulted from an argument between two men in a crowd.

“[Officers] observed numerous other people running through the area,” Elder told the station. “It was a very chaotic scene. Officers dealt with a number of people who had been shot and were laying on the ground.”
