A dispute among suburban library patrons escalated into a daylight drive-by shooting, and a Minneapolis teenager was jailed and charged in Hennepin County.

Tyriek M. Tyner, 18, was charged Monday.

According to the charges:

Three people, described by police as victims, went to the Brookdale Library on the afternoon of Feb. 5 on Shingle Creek Parkway and were approached by three other people, one of them Tyner. The two groups began arguing inside the library.

The victims left the library and walked toward the Best Buy store across the street. Tyner and the other two in his group left the library in a white car.

As the first three walked past the Best Buy, the driver of the car shot at the victims. No one was hurt.

Tyner was stopped in the car several days later by police, and a .22-caliber handgun was recovered.
