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."
