Rideshare driver, teen injured after exchanging gunfire in Minneapolis; 2 teens arrested

Police say two teenagers are in custody following a shooting in Minneapolis.

According to Minneapolis police, officers were called to the 2900 block of Brant Avenue North for a ShotSpotter activation shortly before 11 p.m. Wednesday. They say a rideshare driver flagged officers down at the intersection of Lyndale Avenue North and 27th Avenue and told them he had been shot.

The driver told police he dropped off a juvenile male and female on the 2900 block of Bryant Avenue North, and as the teens got out, they began shooting at him.

Police went on to say the driver, who is permitted to own a gun, then returned fire and drove away after the teens ran from the scene.

The driver was eventually taken to a hospital with potentially life-threatening injuries, officials say.

While investigating the incident, a 17-year-old male involved in the shooting went to North Memorial Hospital to be treated for a gunshot wound, according to police, who say his injury is considered to be non-life-threatening.

He was taken into custody, and police also arrested a 17-year-old female.

Both are being held at the Hennepin County Juvenile Detention Center.

The incident is still being investigated.
