A woman was shot in the arm and a man in the hip early Tuesday outside the Gay 90s nightclub in downtown Minneapolis, police said.
Police arrived at the 400 block of Hennepin Avenue shortly after 2 a.m. on a call of shots fired. Officers administered care to the victims, who were taken to Hennepin County Medical Center for treatment.
Police said the man was 41 and the woman 34. Their injuries were not life-threatening, said police spokesman Corey Schmidt.
Officers interviewed witnesses at the scene, but “people at the scene were not cooperative,” said spokeswoman Sgt. Catherine Michal.
Police are checking with business owners in the area to see if the shooting was captured on surveillance cameras. No arrests have been made.
Investigators also planned to speak with business owners and community members Tuesday in hopes of locating suspects and learning what led to the shooting.
