DULUTH – Three people were arrested following a drive-by shooting in the Denfeld neighborhood Friday morning. No injuries were reported.

According to Duluth police, police responded to a report of a “shooting incident” at 7:10 a.m. near North 41st Avenue West and West Fifth Street.

Witnesses reported seeing those involved enter a nearby house, but police said the residents of the house “left voluntarily and were arrested by officers a short time later without incident.” During the police search, a loaded firearm was seized, police said.

Police said a 16-year-old boy and an 18-year-old man were taken to the St. Louis County Jail on charges of aiding and abetting a drive-by shooting and reckless discharge of a firearm. A 20-year-old man was also taken to jail on a felony warrant for his arrest.

The News Tribune generally does not identify suspects until they are officially charged with a crime.

“No injuries have been reported so far,” the police press release said. “Those involved appear to know each other and there is currently no ongoing danger to the public.”

The investigation is ongoing, police said.

Our newsroom occasionally reports under the name “Staff.” The “Staff” name is often used when rewriting basic news briefs from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure that requires little or no reporting. Sometimes this name is used when a story has multiple authors or when the story consists of compiling previously reported news from various sources. When outside sources are used, this is noted in the story.
