RED WING — Police on Wednesday arrested a Red Wing man they said shot a Florida man on Tuesday.
Red Wing Police said they had arrested 19-year-old Michael Reyes in Woodbury in connection with the Plum Street shooting. Investigators described the shooting as “very unusual.” The man was shot in daylight on a busy city street just three blocks from the Goodhue County Justice Center.
Red Wing Police and Goodhue County Sheriff’s deputies responded to the 700 block of Plum Street, a few blocks outside of Red Wing’s downtown commercial core, shortly before 6:45 p.m.
Witnesses said it appeared the man had been shot in the head, but the injuries could not be confirmed with authorities.
“I don’t believe it was random,” Red Wing Police Sgt. David Addleman said.
Police said D’andre Shawn Hicks, 28, of Tampa, Fla., was taken by ambulance to Mayo Health System-Red Wing, before being airlifted to Mayo Clinic Hospital–Saint Marys in Rochester. His condition was unknown Wednesday afternoon.
A semi-automatic pistol was recovered at the scene.
Witnesses reported hearing one to four gunshots and seeing a male running from the scene to the southeast, toward Bush Street and Minnesota Highway 58.
A passerby, Lisa Radisich, was driving on Plum Street and was at the scene before police arrived. She said she saw a commotion and people near a man laying in the street.
“I stopped my car and got out to go see if I can help him,” she said. “I thought he’d been beat up.”
A bystander told her the man had been shot.
“It looked awful,” she said “I’ve never seen anything so bad … I just cried later.”
