MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - A St. Paul man has been charged with two counts of assault for a downtown Minneapolis shooting that seriously injured a bystander.

The Hennepin County Attorney’s Office says 28-year-old Delorien Chatman, is also charged with one count of possession of a firearm by an adjudicated delinquent. Bail was set at $500,000.

The incident happened about 7:17 p.m. on Aug. 22. Police say a man who was in the area suffered a gunshot wound to his stomach.

Witnesses say two men had gotten into a fight and one of them, who was the shooter, got knocked to the ground. He pulled out a gun and when he got up, fired a shot that hit the victim, and then ran away.

Chatman is scheduled to make his first court appearance Tuesday.
