Man killed outside Hopkins White Castle

Police have yet to release the name of a man killed early Sunday morning in Hopkins.

According to the Star Tribune, two groups of people began arguing and fighting around 2 a.m. in the parking lot of a White Castle in the 500 block of Blake Road when shots were fired hitting the victim.

Television station KSTP reports that the victim was a 24-year-old black man, and WCCO TV reports that two black males were seen fleeing the area after the shooting. WCCO also published that the victim was involved in an altercation between two groups in the parking lot before shots were fired.

The Star Tribune is reporting that authorities have two suspects in custody but are continuing to investigate.

Police are withholding the names of those involved pending further investigation and the Hennepin County Sheriff’s Crime Lab is processing the scene, according to KSTP TV.
