Rochester, MN  (KROC AM News) - A shooting outside a Rochester apartment building remains under investigation.

Interim Police Chief John Sherwin says it happened around 7:30 PM Friday at the Meadow Park Apartments in the 500 block of 14th St SE.

Sherwin says a man was walking to an SUV that had just pulled into a parking lot when shots were fired. The man got into the SUV and it drove off. Police were not able to locate the vehicle or the man so it’s not known if they were hit.

Several witnesses told officers 3-4 shots were fired by a man seen walking along a nearby fence. He was described as black and heavyset and of unknown age.    

Officers found some spent shell casings at the scene.
