Shooting wounds 3, leads to hospital lockdown

MAPLEWOOD, Minn. (AP) — A shooting in a St. Paul suburb left three people wounded, including a 12-year-old boy, and caused a brief lockdown of an area hospital.

The shooting happened Wednesday evening in a residential neighborhood in Maplewood. The Star Tribune says the 12-year-old, a 15-year-old and a 21-year-old man were all shot in the chest. The victims were taken to Regions Hospital in St. Paul where high tension among the victims’ family members led to a brief lockdown.

Witnesses at the scene of the shooting provided information about two suspects and police pulled over their vehicle a short time later. Only one of the two men remains in custody.
