ST. PAUL — Two teenagers were wounded in separate shootings within 90 minutes of each other in St. Paul on Monday, March 30.

Both sustained injuries that were not life-threatening. There was no known connection to the shootings, but investigators always look into whether cases are related, said Sgt. Mike Ernster, a St. Paul police spokesman.

About 5:10 p.m. Monday, officers responded to a report of a male shot in the parking lot of a convenience store in the Prosperity Heights neighborhood of the East Side. He was reported to have left in a Dodge Durango from Sana’s Market at Maryland Avenue and Hazelwood Street.

Officers saw a Durango driving away and stopped it in the area. A 17-year-old who had been shot in the arm was inside, and paramedics transported him to Regions Hospital.

Then, at about 6:40 p.m., officers who were patrolling in a marked squad in the North End heard a confrontation in the parking lot of the Maryland Supermarket at Maryland Avenue and Arundel Street. They saw a male standing next to a sport-utility vehicle yelling at the occupants.

The people in the SUV tried to leave, but the suspect stood behind the vehicle as the driver attempted to back up. Officers witnessed him suddenly draw a handgun and fire into the vehicle’s rear window, Ernster said.

Officers quickly went to the lot as the suspect ran away and attempted to pursue him, but he was out of sight, according to Ernster. Police set up a perimeter and used a K-9 to try to find him, though they did not.

Police realized the SUV had left the lot. It soon arrived at Regions with a 19-year-old man who had been shot in the chest.

The circumstances of both shootings remain under investigation and, as of Tuesday, no one had been arrested, Ernster said.
