Man arrested after Shooting Spree in Plymouth; Rocked the entire neighborhood for complete night after an argument

Plymouth, MN: An early morning burst of gunfire rocked a North Plymouth neighborhood. Plymouth resident Joshua Fitzgerald, 25, was apprehended following an alleged shooting rampage that had left two residences covered in bullet holes.

According to the Plymouth Police Department’s Facebook page, the incident took place at approximately 1:47 AM on North Spooner Street and involved numerous rounds striking residential houses. One shot went into a family room ceiling and another one went through the window of another home.

Fitzgerald and residents of one of the residences that were targeted allegedly got into an argument and then a violent brawl outside of a bar in Downtown, which led to the commotion.

Fitzgerald drove to the neighborhood and started shooting after the altercation at the bar. The occupants of a second house, which had nothing to do with the first altercation, were also killed in the shelling.

The sound of gunshots quickly alerted the Plymouth police, who rushed to the location.

Fitzgerald, who had sought refuge inside his home and later in the backyard, was apprehended after their swift actions. Fitzgerald subsequently dropped a weapon and surrendered to the police.

“Thank goodness, none of the numerous individuals inside were hurt,” stated the official statement from the Plymouth Police Department.

Four counts of Assault to Murder, seven counts of Assault with a deadly weapon, and other related acts are now against Fitzgerald in serious accusations. Fitzgerald, who threatened the public with his violent outburst, is now away from them at Plymouth County Correctional Facility on $10,000 bond, allowing residents and the Plymouth PD to breathe a sigh of relief.
