DULUTH — A 31-year-old man has been arrested in relation to the Sept. 11 shooting at a Duluth gas station that left one person with non-life-threatening injuries. The Duluth Police Department said the man was arrested in Bloomington, Minnesota.

The man, who has not been formally charged yet, is booked in Hennepin County Jail. He faces pending charges of second-degree assault and reckless discharge of a firearm from the St. Louis County Attorney’s Office. The News Tribune generally does not identify suspects until they have been charged with a crime.

The shooting occurred Sunday at the Speedway gas station near the intersection of Fourth Street and Sixth Avenue East.

On Monday morning, police said they located a 2006-2008 silver Chevrolet Impala with Minnesota license plates and a dent on the passenger side in connection with the shooting. It was located on the 200 block of North 16th Avenue East.

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "staff." Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
