Authorities have charged two Minneapolis men with attempted murder after a shooting outside a liquor store in Hudson, Wis., sent three people to the hospital over the weekend.

Guled Bile Abdi, 22, and Ahmed Farah Hirsi, 26, were charged with six counts of attempted first degree intention homicide, three counts of first degree reckless injury, and six counts of first degree recklessly endangering safety, according to the St. Croix County District Attorney's Office.

Both men are currently being held in the Hennepin County Jail awaiting extradition to Wisconsin.

The shooting happened outside a liquor store Sunday. Authorities say one of the Minnesotans shot remains in critical condition while the other two have been treated and released.
Twenty-eight-year-old Fartun I. Aidid, of Hopkins, Minn., was in critical condition Monday at Regions Hospital in St. Paul, Minn. Police say she was shot in the abdomen. Twenty-three-year-old Abdirahman A. Hersi, of Minneapolis, and 21-year-old Mohamed D. Hussein, of Savage, Minn., were treated and released.
Witnesses told police they saw people talking in the parking lot, then heard shots fired. Police say all those involved arrived at the liquor store in two vehicles registered in Minnesota, where liquor stores are closed on Sunday.
