MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) -- A man was hospitalized Thursday night after he was shot during an attempted carjacking in south Minneapolis.

The Minneapolis Police Department says officers responded to the shooting around 8:30 p.m. on the 4800 block of 5th Avenue South, in the Field neighborhood.

Two men told officers that they had just gotten out of a vehicle when two young-looking suspects approached them and demanded the car at gunpoint. A confrontation ensured, and the victims ran.

One of the suspects fired at the men and struck one of them. Emergency crews brought the injured man to a nearby hospital for treatment. He is expected to survive.

The suspects ran from the scene, police say. The incident is under investigation. So far, no arrests have been made.
