5 shot during fight outside Austin events center

| No Comments

Five people were injured, two critically, after shots were fired outside an Austin events center early Sunday.

The shooting occurred around midnight in the parking lot of Lansing Corners, a diner turned events center just outside of Austin, after a hip-hop event, reported the Star Tribune. Two guns were involved in the shooting, officials said.

The two victims in critical condition were a Rochester man and a Sioux Falls, S.D., man, reported the Star Tribune. All of the shooting victims were taken to the Mayo Clinic Health System in Austin before they were transferred to the Mayo Clinic in Rochester.

Authorities are facing difficulties with witnesses. "We do know that several victims are not cooperating, and witnesses at the scene didn't see anything. So that's very frustrating," Mower County Sheriff Terese Amazi said, reported the Star Tribune. Without cooperation, this case will stall soon, she said, reported the Pioneer Press.

No one is currently in custody, reported the Pioneer Press.
