One Dead, One Critically Wounded in Rochester Shooting
Rochester, MN (KROC AM News) - One person was fatally injured and another was seriously wounded in an early Friday shooting in Rochester.
RPD Capt. Casey Moilanen says officers were called to the Villages at Essex apartments complex at 941 41 St NW around 3:30 to investigate a report of a shooting.
Moilanen says officers found two male victims in a hallway, one 18-years-old and the other 20-years-old. Both were taken to St. Marys Hospital where the younger victim died and the other was in critical condition at last report.
