Two men from Minneapolis came to town for the booze and went out with a bang, bang, bang. As in--3 gun shots, which were fired at individuals in the liqour store parking lot. One person still remains in critical condition.

So far, authorities believe there was communication among people in two separate vehicles. This exchange of sorts has Hudson's chief of police assuring the public's safety. Evidence suggests the victims made an attempt to get help from liqour store clerks.
