(Reuters) - A 34-year-old gunman was expected to face criminal charges in Minnesota on Tuesday after killing a 9-year-old boy and wounding two women when he opened fire on motorists in a St. Paul suburb, authorities said.
Police in Oakdale, Minnesota, said the attacker, whose name was not immediately released, fired two bursts of bullets at passing vehicles from a handgun before he was taken into custody on Monday evening shortly after the shooting.
The gunman appears to be a “random single active shooter,” Oakdale Police Officer Michelle Stark said on Tuesday. “We feel with his arrest there is no active threat to the public safety at this time.” —->Continued
