Two people were fatally shot and another was wounded early Friday at an after-hours establishment at 39th St. and Fremont Av. N. in Minneapolis, according to Minneapolis police.

The incident happened around 3 a.m., and when police were called to a commercial building on a report of shots fired. When they arrived they found two men dead.

Police Sgt. Stephen McCarty said 50 to 100 people were gathered at the after hours establishment when the shooting occurred.

McCarty said one of the men who died was found outside the building and the other was found inside. Their identities have not yet been released.

About 20 minutes later, a man arrived at Hennepin County Medical Center with "non-life threatening injuries," McCarty said. It was later determined that the man had been at the scene of the shooting.

McCarty said police are interviewing several people connected to the incident, but no suspects are in custody. He said that preliminary information indicates that the public is not at risk.

Police ask anyone with information about the shooting to call 612-692-8477.
