Brooklyn Park shooting kills two

Two Festival Foods employees were shot and killed Friday in Brooklyn Park.
At 8:30 p.m. a store employee had walked into the store's break room, apparently in a fit of jealousy, where two employees were sitting and shot both of them. One was killed and the other was fatally injured reported the Star Tribune.
According to the Hennepin County medical examiner Abigail M. Fedeli, 20, died of a single gunshot wound to the neck and the other employee, a 21-year-old man, died after being taken to the North Memorial Medical Center in Robbinsdale reported the Star Tribune.
KARE 11 news reported that police called the suspected shooter an ex-acquaintance of Fedeli and that they learned very early on who they were looking for.
The police tracked down the suspect in Minneapolis and as they surrounded him he shot himself near West River Parkway said the Star Tribune. His body was found underneath the Washington Avenue Bridge.
Deputy Chief Craig Enevoldsen said that the suspect had no criminal history before the shooting reported KARE 11 news.
According to the Star Tribune the store was closed on Saturday, but re-opened Sunday morning. The store also provided counseling to its employees following the shootings reported KARE 11 news.

The male victim was later identified as Michael Habte and that Habte and Fedeli had been dating for a month or two and the shooter, still yet to be identified, used to date Fedeli reported the Star Tribune.
