Chanhassen Shooting Investigation


The Carver County Sheriff’s Office responded to a shooting Thursday night in Chanhassen.

The shooting occurred in the 500 block of Market Street around 10:31p.m.

When deputies arrived, they found 20-year-old Nicholas Hovey suffering from an apparent gunshot wound to his leg. Hovey was transported by Ridgeview Ambulance to Hennepin Healthcare with non-life threatening injuries.

Detectives learned that Hovey met with several other male subjects in a parking lot. One of the males pulled out a gun and demanded Hovey give him money.

Hovey attempted to disarm the subject and was ultimately shot in the leg.

The suspects fled the scene.
