Two people have died after being shot in a Brooklyn Park grocery store before the shooting turned the gun on himself in Minneapolis after eluding police Friday night.
Both a man and a woman were found in the Festival Foods break room when police responded to a call. The woman was pronounced dead at the scene and the man was taken to North Memorial Medical Center in Robbinsdale, where he was later pronounced dead.
Police responded to a call at about 8:30 p.m. from someone who heard several shots from the back of the grocery store, according to The Republic.
The suspected shooter took his own life at the foot of the Washington Avenue Bridge in Minneapolis later in the evening after being pursued by police for about an hour.
The Star Tribune reports the shooter is believed to have been an ex-acquaintance of the female victim.
The events unfolded near the University of Minnesota campus. The Minnesota Daily reports several students witnessed the incident and what happened afterwards.
