Police are investigating a Wednesday shooting in Crystal, Minn., that took place near a bus stop after students exited the bus, the principal said.
Crystal police said they were called to the area of 38th and Adair avenues shortly after 4 p.m. Wednesday on a report of shots fired. They did not locate any victims but recovered “a number” of shell casings at the scene.
The shooting took place just blocks away from the FAIR School, a magnet school that is part of Robbinsdale Area Schools.
“Officers located some older juveniles walking away from the area and believe they were connected to the incident, although the juveniles were not very cooperative with officers. The initial investigation has determined this incident was not random, specifically targeted, and we do not believe there is any danger to the public,” police said.
A video sent to Alpha News and obtained by a local Facebook group called Birdtown Crime Watch & Information captured the incident. About 15 gunshots can be heard in the video.
In a message to parents, Cooper High School Principal Dr. Frank Herman said the shooting took place “at one of our bus stops.”
“According to the Crystal Police Department, there were reports of gunshots fired near a bus stop after some Cooper students had gotten off the bus,” he said.
Police said they were not able to provide any additional information at this time because the incident remains under investigation. They encouraged anyone with information to contact the police department at: 763-531-1020.
