A man visiting a woman at the Best Western in Bloomington, Minn. near the Mall of America was assaulted and shot by a man he didn't know.
At about 11:30 p.m. on Saturday, he arrived at the hotel room at 1901 Killebrew Drive and was confronted by an unknown man who began to assault him. The victim was leaving the room when he was shot "in his lower extremities," a Bloomington police release stated.
He reported the incident a few hours later from Faribault, Minn. where he received medical treatment for his non-life threatening injures.
Police arrested a man and woman at 6 a.m. on Sunday at the Best Western, though the woman has been released. Police are investigating.
