The criminal complaint said the surveillance tape showed the two teenagers on the 8300 block of Chicago Avenue South in Bloomington. The 16-year-old runs across a courtyard and out of the camera before a red limousine drives down the street. The car slows down as the 15-year-old and someone in the car start talking. The car then drives to the curb and gunfire breaks out – with footage showing a flash of lightning off the screen. The car drives off and the two teenagers run away.

When Bloomington Police were driving to the scene, Richfield Police officers noticed a red car parked on 66th Street West. Of the three inmates, two were uninjured, but the third – a 19-year-old man – had a gunshot wound to the face. The officers saw a bullet hole on the passenger door and another near the rear window. Investigators found three shell casings at the Bloomington crime scene.
On March 20, a search warrant was issued on the 16-year-old’s home and a gun was found in his bedroom.
Both teenagers are currently in the youth detention center in the Hennepin district. There’s still no word on whether the 15-year-old has been formally charged.
