A woman was shot in the leg and a teenage boy was shot in the abdomen and seriously injured in two St. Paul shootings early Saturday morning, police said.
The first shooting occurred just after 1 a.m. near Northwestern Avenue and Topping Street, St. Paul Police Sgt. Mike Ernster. When police arrived, they found a teenage boy suffering from a gunshot wound to the abdomen. He was taken to Regions Hospital with life-threatening injuries, but his condition was reported as stable Saturday afternoon.
Police are investigating the circumstances of the shooting and no arrests have been made as of Saturday.
The second shooting occurred just before 2 a.m. downtown in the 300 block of Wabasha Street in front of Gray Duck Tavern, Ernster said.
Officers found evidence of a shooting outside the tavern, but did not find any victims or the shooter. Shortly thereafter, a woman arrived at Fairview Riverside Hospital in Minneapolis with a gunshot wound to her leg.
Ernster said the woman told him she was shot on Wabasha Street in St. Paul. St. Paul police have interviewed her and are investigating her shooting.
