Two men killed in shooting in St.Paul

Two men were killed and three others were injured in a shooting outside a St.Paul funeral on January, 28th.

The St.Paul Police Department said all people were shot shortly after 5 p.m. Saturday during an altercation after a celebration-of-life event. One of the victims who were injured was in critical condition while the other two injured women had conditions that were not considered life-threatening. 

One man died on the scene while the other died at the hospital after he was taken there in a private vehicle. 

Minnesota Gov. Tim Walz called the weekend gun violence unacceptable in a tweet. 

The gun violence in St. Paul this weekend is unacceptable. I’m committed to increasing public safety funding, getting illegal guns off the streets, and addressing gang activity to curb the cycle of violence.

— Gov. Tim Walz

Two arrests were made right away. This shooting came one day after three teens were shot at a funeral reception for a Harding High School student who had been fatally stabbed two weeks earlier. Police said that there is no evidence at this point that the two events are connected.
