Places to Avoid

Avoid Big Box stores in the ghetto, or just north of the ghetto.

Shopping at Best Buy, then, suddenly a rolling gunfight comes into the neighborhood.

Shots were fired the afternoon of Tuesday, Feb. 5, at the area of the Best Buy store at 5925 Earle Brown Drive in Brooklyn Center.

Earlier in the afternoon, officers responded to a call of a fight between two groups at the Brookdale Regional Service Center at 6125 Shingle Creek Parkway in Brooklyn Center.

A short time later reports were received which indicated the suspects who had been involved in the altercation at the Service Center had fled to the area of the Best Buy store and that shots had been fired between the two groups. Responding Brooklyn Center Police officers and deputies from the Hennepin County Sheriff's Office arrested some of the people involved.

The preliminary investigation established no one was hurt in the incident.

In a press release from Best Buy, "Our thoughts are with those affected by the shooting in the parking lot of our Brooklyn Center store. We can currently confirm that no employees were injured. We are shocked by this incident and are fully cooperating with the local law enforcement to provide any information useful to the investigation."
