Both suspected shooters were arrested on suspicion of second-degree assault, drive-by shooting towards a person and reckless discharge of a firearm. They’re awaiting arraignment in Olmsted County Court.

Moilanen said investigators are still trying to determine who fired a gunshot in the apartment’s hallway and who discharged the bullets that struck two other buildings in the complex. One of the rounds that hit one of the buildings entered a bedroom that was unoccupied at the time of the shooting.
