HUDSON, Wis. (AP) -- Criminal complaints reveal more about the motive of a shooting outside a liquor store in Hudson.

Police say the shooting Sunday involved members of rival gangs.

Two Minneapolis men have been charged with shooting three people in the parking lot of Spirit Seller Liquor. One victim remains in critical condition at Regions Hospital in St. Paul, Minn. The two others were treated and released from the hospital.

Twenty-two-year-old Guled Abdi and 26-year-old Ahmed Hirsi are charged with 15 counts each, including attempted first-degree intentional homicide. The St. Paul Pioneer Press says they are in the Hennepin County Jail in Minnesota awaiting extradition to Wisconsin. The men were arrested at a hotel near the Mall of America by Bloomington police later Sunday.
