Two men have been killed and eight others injured after two people in a crowd got into an argument, pulled out guns and started shooting each other in Minneapolis.
The mass shooting unfolded in the early hours of Saturday morning along the 300 block of North 1st Avenue in the downtown area of the city, reported KSTP.
The 10 people shot included five men and five women, with all the victims confirmed as adults.
The two people killed are men, while another male is in hospital in a critical condition. The remaining seven victims have non-life-threatening injuries and are expected to survive.
Minneapolis Police spokesperson John Elder said the deadly shooting began when two people standing in a crowded area got into a verbal fight.
The two people then both pulled out guns and started shooting at each other.
Officers were working in the downtown area for the evening bar close when they heard the sound of gunshot at 1:59 am.
The officers ran to the area and ‘encountered an exceptionally chaotic scene’, said Elder.
