AUSTIN, Minn. (AP) - Sheriff's investigators say their work to find those responsible for a shooting outside an events center near Austin that left five wounded, including two critically, has been hampered by uncooperative witnesses.
Mower County Sheriff's Chief Deputy Mark May said Monday no arrests have been made in the shooting outside the former Lansing Corners supper club near Austin that now hosts special events.
May says a "rap party" got out of control early Sunday and as security staff broke up the crowd, shots rang out in the parking lot. The chief deputy estimates there were about 200 people in the parking lot.
May says two small-caliber handguns were used in the shooting, but he would not say whether they were recovered.
Officials say the critically injured are from Rochester and Sioux Falls, S.D.
