Man shot at downtown Minneapolis strip club

MINNEAPOLIS — Minneapolis police are investigating a shooting at a downtown strip club.

Sgt. William Palmer says the shooting happened around 2 a.m. Sunday at Augie's Bourbon Street Cabaret.

Police say a 27-year-old Eagan man was shot as he was coming out of the bathroom. He was taken to a hospital with non-life threatening injuries. Another man was injured as people quickly left the club on Hennepin Avenue. He was taken to the hospital with minor injuries.

Palmer says police believe there's no danger to the general public.

Last year, Augie's had about 60 police calls, which police say is not excessive for a downtown club.
