One person was fatally shot and another wounded by gunfire in Hibbing, Minn., on Christmas night, and authorities say the gunman is on the run and possibly in the Twin Cities metro area.

Callers to 911 in the Iron Range city reported shots being fired Tuesday night, and police went to the 2400 block of 3rd Avenue E., where they found two victims, according to the state Bureau of Criminal Apprehension (BCA).

A male was pronounced dead at Fairview Range Medical Center in Hibbing, authorities said. The other person was treated at the same hospital and released.

Authorities have not identified either victim or explained the circumstances surrounding the gunfire.

The suspect, identified as 29-year-old Jerome D. Spann, fled in a vehicle with an unidentified male, the BCA said.

The two "may have traveled to St. Paul, where Spann has relatives," a statement from the BCA read.

Spann should be considered armed and dangerous, and he should not be approached, the agency added.

His criminal history in Minnesota includes two convictions for illegal gun possession and two for driving after his license was suspended.

Anyone with information about Spann's whereabouts is urged to 911 or Hibbing police at 218-263-3601.
