"2 teens shot at Southdale Mall"

Two teenage boys, 15 and 18, were shot during a gang-related fight in a Southdale mall parking lot Friday evening.

According to The Minneapolis Star Tribune, one of the boys was shot in the leg and the other was shot in the abdomen, requiring surgery. Both boys, whose names have not been released, were taken to Hennepin County Medical Center in Minneapolis after the incident in the parking lot outside the J.C. Penney store.

Police Cheif Mike Siitari said that "at least four shots from a .45-caliber handgun were fired during the clash between the rival Hispanic groups."

The shooter, who has not yet been identified, is "believed to be between 16 and 18 years old." Investigators have been reviewing security tapes from that evening in an attempt to find more clues.

"No arrests had been made as of late Friday," Siitari told The Star Tribune.
