Two Men Shot Near Funeral Home

Two men were shot near a hmong funeral home in Maplewood last Saturday.

An unnamed gunman opened fire at about 10:40 p.m. in the parking lot outside Metro Funeral Home while the building was full of mourners, Maplewood police said Sunday.

The first victim, a 20-year-old man from Brooklyn Park, was shot in the abdomen while standing outside the building. He was taken to Regions Hospital and as of Sunday remained in intensive care, police said.

The second victim, a 40-year-old man driving by the scene, was shot in the left arm by a stray bullet. He was treated at Regions Hospital and was released Sunday.

Police Lt. David Kvam said the first victim appeared to be the intended target. No arrest has been made, but a suspect has been identified.
