Officers from several nearby agencies were called to the Marathon gas station at 433 E. Mendota Road to help with crowd control. Some people attempted to take control of a vehicle occupied by one of the shooting victims, according to a statement from West St. Paul police.
The original call came in about a woman who was shot in the foot near the gas pumps about 8:48 p.m. Police arrived and found the woman with a gunshot wound to a lower extremity and an adult male with multiple gunshot wounds, the statement said.
