MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - No one was hurt when a gunman sprayed rounds toward an emergency room entrance at Hennepin County Medical Center in downtown Minneapolis.

The gunfire erupted after a dispute between two groups of people at the hospital. Bullets shattered windows and hit an SUV during the middle of Tuesday afternoon at the busy intersection.

The Star Tribune (https://strib.mn/1zBsjUy ) reports HCMC immediately went on lockdown as police quickly descended on the area around 3:15 p.m., roped off the crime scene and began looking for suspects.

A pile of 23 shell casings were left scattered on the street about 100 feet from the hospital entrance.

It’s the third gun-related incident near the hospital this year.
