Around 10:40 p.m. Friday, officers responded to a vehicle that had crashed into a home at 701 4th Street North in Austin. A deceased man and two injured passengers were found inside the vehicle, police said.
Investigators learned that before the crash, five people got into the vehicle near the 700 block of 2nd Street northwest. The two suspects in the Durango drove near the victim vehicle and a person inside began shooting, police said. The victim vehicle began to roll and eventually crashed into the home, which police say was unoccupied.
The driver of the victim vehicle was pronounced deceased at the scene. He was taken to the Southern Minnesota Regional Medical Examiner’s Office for an autopsy and identification. His name will be released once his family is notified, police said.
Two others who were in the vehicle were also shot and were taken to Mayo Clinic Health Systems in Austin.
The female victim was airlifted to Mayo Clinic Hospital St. Mary’s Campus in Rochester. The male victim was brought to the same facility by ambulance. Both are in serious but stable condition, according to police.
The Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension and Minnesota Department of Corrections are helping with the investigation.
