Shootout Inside St Paul Bar Leaves Young Woman Dead, 14 Injured
St Paul (KROC AM News) - An apparent gun battle inside a St Paul bar has left one person dead and sent more than a dozen others to the hospital.
The St Paul Police Dept. reports ”Multiple 911 callers frantically begged for help after more than a dozen people were shot, one fatally, inside a bar in Saint Paul early Sunday morning.”
SPD says officers went to the Truck Park bar just after midnight and “found a chaotic scene with 15 people suffering from gunshot wounds.”
A police spokesman said victims were found on the floor of the bar and some were also on the sidewalk. SPD says Good Samaritans helped officers ”render aid and make sure it was safe for Saint Paul Fire medics to make their way to the area.”
According to police, a woman in her 20s was pronounced dead and 14 other people were transported to area hospitals for treatment. All are expected to survive.
As of Sunday morning, no arrests had been made.

“My heart breaks for the woman who was killed, her loved ones and everyone else who was in that bar this morning,” said Saint Paul Chief of Police Todd Axtell. “In an instant, they found themselves caught in a hellish situation. I want them to know that we have the best investigators in the country, and we won’t stop until we find the people responsible for this madness. We will do our part to hold them accountable.”
