Devin Scott funeral: 3 shot during event for Harding High School stabbing victim
ST. PAUL, Minn. (FOX 9) - Three teenage boys were taken to the hospital with gunshot wounds Friday night after a shooting at a memorial service for Devin Scott - the victim of the fatal stabbing at Harding High School.
According to the St. Paul Police Department, at around 7:42 p.m. officers responded to a shooting at the Wellstone Center on the 100 block of East Robie St. in St. Paul. Officers arrived to find three male juveniles in their teens suffering from apparent gunshot injuries that appear to be non-fatal.
According to police, preliminary information indicates that a white sedan drove by the Wellstone Center located at the address and fired shots into the building. At least 8 bullet holes were visible on the door frame and the windows at the entrance to the building.
Following the shooting, a white sedan was involved in a crash with another vehicle on the 400 block of Clinton Ave. Two males ran from that crash scene and officers searched the area for them, but did not locate anyone.
Officers responding to the shooting stopped a 16-year-old male who was running away from the area and found to have a handgun outfitted with a switch and an extended magazine. He was taken into custody by police. Investigators aren’t sure if he was involved in the drive-by shooting or if he was seeking to retaliate.
Ramsey County Sheriff Bob Fletcher was streaming on his Live on Patrol YouTube channel Friday night. Fletcher said the victims are between the ages of 14 and 17. The funeral service for Devin Scott was earlier Friday in Minneapolis and the event at the Wellstone Center was a reception.
