Minn. shooting that hurt 5 likely gang-related

AUSTIN, Minn. — Authorities say a weekend shooting that injured five people outside a southern Minnesota events center likely was gang-related.

Mower County Sheriff Terese Amazi says several gangs were involved in Saturday night's shooting outside a former supper club near Austin.

Witnesses — including the five victims — have not cooperated with authorities. Amazi says witnesses are likely not cooperating because of fear of retaliation.

The shooting happened in the parking lot following a hip-hop concert. The sheriff says authorities have recovered one of the guns involved in the shooting. But no arrests have been made.

The Austin Daily Herald (http://bit.ly/PSrHbf) reports a 17-year-old from Sioux Falls, S.D., who was reportedly shot in his right calf has been released from the hospital. The sheriff says everyone is expected to recover.
