A 29-year-old man injured in a St. Paul shooting was driving in the North End when a passenger in his car robbed him and opened fire, police said Friday.
 
Officers responded on Thursday, just before 1 p.m., on a report of a shooting and three-vehicle crash at Rice Street and Hoyt Avenue.
 
Police determined the 29-year-old was driving south on Rice Street with a man who he knew, said Sgt. Mike Ernster, a St. Paul police spokesman.
 
The passenger suddenly demanded the man’s money and robbed him while he was driving. He shot the driver in the right hip.
 
The man’s car crossed the center line and he struck a van heading north, and then another vehicle following the van hit the shooting victim’s car, Ernster said.
 
 
The man who was shot was taken to Regions Hospital with a non-life threatening gunshot wound. No other injuries were reported.
 
 
Police said they continue to investigate. No one had been arrested as of Friday morning.

For those not from this locale, the "North Side" is the Minneapolis shooting gallery.  The only thing odd about this story is that they were in the same car and knew each other.

OK, but what does "North End" mean?
