One man was struck and injured by gunfire Friday night as he was driving along Highway 100 in Robbinsdale. The shooting happened around 10 p.m. Friday on Highway 100 near 42nd Avenue.
"We believe at least a dozen shots were fired," said Police Chief Jim Franzen.
Franzen says the shooter used a semiautomatic handgun. The shooting victim told police he was driving southbound on Highway 100 when another vehicle pulled up alongside and opened fire.
The victim was hit in the shoulder and managed to drive himself to North Memorial Medical Center. His front-seat passenger was not hurt.
After the shooting Friday night, police shut down Highway 100 between 42nd and 36th so they could gather evidence.
"We don't have any indication that this was related to any kind of road rage incident or driving conduct incident," said Franzen.
Robbinsdale police are trying to determine whether this was a random shooting and have several investigators on the case. Anyone with information is urged to contact Robbinsdale police at (763) 531-1220.
