Minn. Shooting That Hurt Five Likely Gang-Related

austin, mn

Authorities say a weekend shooting that injured five people outside a southern Minnesota events center likely was gang-related.

Mower County Sheriff Terese Amazi says several gangs were involved in Saturday night's shooting outside a former supper club near Austin.

Witnesses - including the five victims - have not cooperated with authorities. Amazi says witnesses are likely not cooperating because of fear of retaliation.

The shooting happened in the parking lot following a hip-hop concert. The sheriff says authorities have recovered one of the guns involved in the shooting.  But no arrests have been made.

A 17-year-old from Sioux Falls who was reportedly shot in his right calf has been released from the hospital. The sheriff says everyone is expected to recover.
