Rochester Shooting Victim Arrested As Suspected Shooter
Rochester, MN (KROC AM News) - Two teenagers have been made arrested as suspects in Wednesday night’s shooting in Rochester that sent two teens to the hospital.
One of the suspects was also one of the shooting victims.
Police Capt. Casey Moilanen says the 17-year-old had agreed to sell a gun to the 19-year-old who was shot. They were in a car near Heritage Manor Apartments when a confrontation broke out. Moilanen says the 17-year-old then “fired multiple shots.” The victim was apparently hit twice in the chest and then removed from the car before it left the scene.
The driver of the car is the other suspect. Moilanen says he drove the 17-year-old home.
The 17-year-old was later taken to the hospital to be treated for a bullet wound to his shoulder. Moilanen says at this point it’s not known how he was shot.
Moilanen says it’s believed there was another person in the car at the time of the shooting.
Moilanen says the investigation continues and more arrests are possible.
Moilanen says both suspects were released Friday, "pending further investigation."
