BROOKLYN PARK, Minn. (WCCO) -- Police in the north metro say a group of thieves stole a person's gun Monday evening, then shot at the victim as they gave chase.

Brooklyn Center officers first responded to the 5800 block of Shingle Creek Parkway on a reported robbery around 7:20 p.m.

Multiple suspects allegedly stole a person's gun, and the victim then pursued the suspects as they fled, according to the Brooklyn Park Police Department.
