Two Men Arrested Near MOA After Hudson Shooting

Monday, January 20th, 2014 at 7:00 am

Police say two men have been arrested after three people were shot outside of a liquor store in Hudson on Sunday morning.

WQOW reports that shortly before 9:30 a.m. Hudson police officers and deputies from the St. Croix County Sheriff’s office were called to Spirit Seller Liquors. When they arrived, they learned two men and one woman had been shot in an SUV parked outside of the store. All three were taken to Regions Hospital in Saint Paul and their conditions weren’t updated.

The victims and suspects were in cars with Minnesota license plates, and may have driven across the border to Hudson to buy alcohol because Minnesota liquor stores are closed Sundays.

Witnesses told police they saw a Cadillac leave the liquor store and head toward I-94 and WQOW reports that two black men were said to be inside the car. Based on that information an alert was sent out to Minnesota law enforcement.

Not long after, an Eagan police officer spotted the car and suspects and later arrested them at the Hampton Inn near the Mall of America. Police were also able to recover evidence that may link the two to the shooting.
