2-year-old shot in Brooklyn Park apartment dies from injuries

The child's mother and grandmother have been arrested, and police are looking for another suspect.

Police have confirmed that the 2-year-old child shot at a Brooklyn Park apartment Thursday has died.

Brooklyn Park PD announced the child's death Saturday, which follows a shooting just after 7 a.m. Thursday in the 5800 block of 73rd Avenue.

The child was in a critical condition following the shooting, and later succumbed to their injuries.

The child's 20-year-old mother and 57-year-old grandmother were arrested Friday in connection with the shooting and "covering up the crime after the fact."

Police are also searching for another individual, 20-year-old Keyshawn Lemont Cosey-Gray, who is believed to have been involved in the shooting.

There were "numerous" people inside the apartment when the shooting happened, police said Friday, with many of those there providing conflicting accounts of what happened.

The child has not yet been identified.
