Three people are recovering from non-life-threatening injuries sustained in a shooting in downtown Minneapolis Monday night, Fox 9 reports.

According to investigators, the shootings took place in front of the Market Barbeque and Nicollet Avenue at about 11:30 p.m.

The victims were transported to Hennepin County Medical Center in Minneapolis.

Police say they are still searching for leads.

The triple shooting is the latest in a rash of shooting incidents in the Twin Cities and around the state in the past week.

Last week, two people died in what police determined to be a murder-suicide at Roseville strip mall.

Also last week, a woman and her boyfriend were shot in Granite Falls. Kara Monson, 26, immediately died from her injuries, while Chris Panitzke, 28, succumbed to his injuries Sunday at Hennepin County Medical Center.

Police are still searching for Monson's ex-boyfriend, Andrew Joseph Dikken, in connection with the case. Dikken, 28, is being described as a "person of interest."

Meanwhile, a 2-month baby is recovering from critical injuries after an accidental shooting in Minneapolis.

The baby was not hit by a stray bullet fired by an unknown suspect, as the father of the child initially told police. Instead, a young male -- revealed as an uncle of the child -- accidentally fired a shot inside the home and fled the scene.
