ST. PAUL, Minn.—Two men were killed and three other people were injured in a second shooting outside gatherings to mourn loved ones in St. Paul this weekend.
The St. Paul Police Department said all five people were shot in a parking lot shortly after 5 p.m. Saturday during an altercation after a celebration-of-life event. One man died at the scene while a second man died at a hospital after he was taken there in a private vehicle.
The three people who were injured included a man who was in critical condition Saturday and two women with injuries not considered life-threatening.
No arrests had been made as of Sunday morning. None of the victims’ names were released immediately.
Saturday’s shooting came one day after three teens were shot and injured at a funeral reception for a Harding High School student who had been fatally stabbed at school two weeks earlier.
Police said there was no evidence the two weekend shootings were connected.
