Two Men Shot in Maplewood

Both the Star Tribune and the Pioneer Press are reporting the shooting of two men near a funeral home in Maplewood. Saturday evening, a 20-year-old man was shot in the stomach, and a 40-year-old man who happened to be driving by at the time was struck in the arm by a stray bullet. When police arrived, they found the 20-year-old in the parking lot of a funeral home, and both men were rushed to Regions Hospital in St. Paul.

The story from the Star Tribune is written by a staff writer, while the story in the Pioneer Press is from the AP. While the Star Tribune story feels a little more locally focused, the Pioneer Press story does have a detail about the police saying there was an altercation before the shooting, something that the Star Tribune does not have.
