2 Shot At Minneapolis Community Center

Police TapeMINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Minneapolis police say two men were shot and wounded at the Brian Coyle Community Center in the city’s Cedar-Riverside area.

Police spokesman Sgt. William Palmer says one victim was wounded in the torso, but it looks like he will survive. The other victim was shot in the leg. Both were taken to Hennepin County Medical Center.

Palmer says the shooting was reported around 5:30 p.m. Monday. He says there have been no arrests, and police have no suspect description.

The Brian Coyle Center has social and youth programs as well as a gymnasium.

In September 2008, a 20-year-old man was shot and killed outside the center.
