Police: Victim of possible gang shooting won’t talk

CLOQUET, Minn. – Cloquet police are investigating what is believed to be a gang-related shooting on the Fond du Lac Indian Reservation in which the victim was shot in the foot, but investigators say he isn’t providing much information because he fears for his life.

Investigator Darrin Berg said Cloquet police received a call from a Duluth hospital on Friday informing them that a 19-year-old man was being treated for a gunshot wound.

Investigators went to the hospital, but the victim didn’t want to talk to them.

“He’s not talking to us based on his fear,” Berg said. Berg said there are indications that the Native Mob from the Twin Cities could have been involved in the shooting and it could involve a drug deal, but the investigation is continuing.
