Brooklyn Park Police Investigate Shooting, Attempted Armed Robbery
Brooklyn Park police are looking for two men that shot and attempted to rob two people. The incident happened just after 3 p.m. Tuesday at the parking lot of Bill’s Market on Brookdale Drive North.
Police say the victims were inside their car when two men approached them. Shots were fired while the men tired to rob the victims, police said.
One victim was shot in the shoulder with a handgun. He suffered non-life threatening injuries.
“Preliminary information is that they had some association with each other,” said Brooklyn Park Deputy Police Chief Mark Bruley. “So victims and suspects did know of each other, so it doesn’t appear to be completely random at this time. What started the altercation, we are not quite clear on.”
Police, at this point, don’t believe the robbers are connected to other recent robberies in Brooklyn Park.
