Rochester, MN (KROC AM News) - An apartment building was hit by at least two rounds during a shooting that took place outside a Rochester convenience store early Wednesday.

Officers were called to the Holiday store at the intersection of Broadway and 7th St NW around 12:45 am and were told by witnesses that 3 to 8 shots were fired.

Police Capt. Casey Moilanen says the shots were fired from inside a vehicle at a man who was walking through the parking lot. As the man fled on foot, more shots were fired in his direction.

The 42-year-old man was located nearby by the officers. He had not been hit.

But officers later learned the apartment building in the 700 block of N. Broadway had been hit by two bullets. One entered an occupied apartment but the person inside was not hurt.
