- One person was injured in a shooting outside the Wal-Mart in Brooklyn Center, Minn. late Tuesday afternoon.

Brooklyn Center Police Department Commander Garett Flesland said officers responded to a report of gunshots outside the store at 1200 Shingle Creek Crossing at approximately 4:40 p.m. Upon arrival, officers located one individual with a gunshot wound to the leg. The victim was transported to a nearby hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Following the shooting, Wal-Mart managers decided to close the store for the remainder of the night. The store is expected to reopen sometime Wednesday morning. 

The shooting remains under investigation.
