Moorhead Police Department is investigating a shooting that injured a child on Sunday evening. 

Police say the incident happened around 5:20 p.m. in the parking lot of Hornbachers Foods at 950 40th Ave. S., and a preliminary investigation leads police to believe that a group of people were sitting in a vehicle when a man approached and an altercation ensued. 

At some point, the man fired a shot with a handgun into the vehicle, shattering a window and causing superficial injuries to a child inside the vehicle, who was taken to a local hospital for treatment. 

Police say the group of people in the vehicle know the suspect and that it was not a random encounter.
