Mass shooting in Minnesota bar: Woman killed, 14 injured; 3 held

MINNEAPOLIS, Oct 11: One woman was killed and 14 others wounded in a mass shooting at a popular restaurant in West Seventh Street in St Paul city in Minnesota State shortly after midnight Sunday morning. Three suspects who were among the injured have been arrested. All the injured are admitted in nearby hospitals.

An eyewitness said around 12:15 am a dozen or so shots went off and everyone dropped to the ground. People called 911 to report shots fired inside the Seventh Street Truck Park on West 7th Street, and they "frantically begged" for help, according to the city police. This is an area where usually people come, hang out and celebrate peacefully.

The young woman who died was identified as Marquisha Wiley by one who knew her. But police typically withholds name pending an autopsy and notification of relatives.

Information about the suspects are typically not released till they are chargesheeted. Once they are released, they will be taken to the jail and the charging procedure follows.

Steve Linders, public information officer for the St. Paul Police Department, said, "This is nothing short of a tragedy. We had people in the City of St. Paul, out on a Saturday night having a good time. And we had other people who decided to pull guns, with reckless disregard for human life, and pull the trigger over and over and over again. And it ended in tragedy."

Peter Mazalewski, who works as a DJ at the Seventh Street Truck Park, an indoor food truck and bar featuring live music and dancing, told CNN, "Everybody was having fun and singing along. Then 12:15 a.m., abrupt, with no arguments or fighting, pop, pop, pop, pop, pop. And everybody hit the ground."

St. Paul Mayor Melvin Carter said in a post on Twitter that the shooting has left his community "devastated."
