Minneapolis police were investigating shots that were fired at Hennepin County Medical Center in downtown Minneapolis on Tuesday afternoon.
The shooting happened outside the "red" entrance to HCMC, at 730 S. 8th St.
Police had this entrance to the hospital blocked off with yellow crime scene tape around 3:40 p.m. The street was closed between Park Avenue and Chicago Avenue.
There are bullet casings in street near 8th and Chicago Avenues.
Police believe it was possibly connected to a shooting earlier Tuesday near 38th Street and Portland Avenue S. in Minneapolis. Two people were injured just before noon with what police called "non-life-threatening injuries."
