MINNEAPOLIS — One man is dead and two others are wounded in a shooting at a gas station in Minneapolis.

Police were called to the Old Colony gas station about 3:30 a.m. Sunday where officers found three men who had been shot in the front of the store. All three men were taken to Hennepin County Medical Center where one died.

A clerk at the store, who didn’t want to be identified, told KARE-TV that the shooting happened just outside a bulletproof window. The clerk says that from midnight to 4 a.m., station employees help customers through the bulletproof window because the doors to the store are locked.
