Two men in their 40s were shot and critically wounded at a home just off E. Lake Street in Minneapolis, officials said Thursday.

The gunfire occurred about 11 p.m. Wednesday in the 2900 block of S. 12th Avenue, said Police Sgt. Garrett Parten.

Officers arrived to see one man outside the home with "at least one potentially life-threatening gunshot wound," Parten said.

They then located another man inside the residence, also with a potentially life-threatening-gunshot wound, the sergeant said.

Both men, ages 40 and 45, were taken to HCMC in Minneapolis. Police have yet to release their identities.

Police collected evidence at the scene and sought out witnesses in pursuit of a motive. No arrests have been announced.
