1 Arrested After Shooting on I-35 in Duluth
DULUTH, Minn. – Duluth Police say an adult male was taken into custody Sunday night following reports of shots fired on I-35 near 27th Avenue West.
According to police, shortly after the reports of shots fired officers received a report of a car crash around the 4700 block of Miller Trunk Highway. The description of the vehicle in the crash matched the suspect vehicle in the shots fired incident.
Police say the incident began as a verbal argument between a male and female and during the argument the male fired his gun out of the window of the car.
There were no reported injuries as a result of the shooting.
When officers arrived at the crash scene they learned that the female was driving at the time of the shooting incident and when she pulled over to exit the car the male drove off and crashed a short time later.
The 26-year-old male suspect was transported to the hospital for non-life-threatening injuries.
He was later arrested and was brought to the St. Louis County Jail for reckless discharge of a firearm, second-degree assault, carrying while intoxicated, and driving while impaired.
This is the 19th shooting in the city since July and the 29th so far this year compared to 22 in 2019.
