A two-year-old child is in a critical condition after they were shot in Brooklyn Park Thursday morning.

Brooklyn Park Police Department says the incident was reported shortly after 7 a.m. in the 5800 block of 73rd Avenue.

Officers arrived to find the child had been wounded, and provided first aid and CPR.

Police say "numerous adults" were in the apartment when the child was shot, and those there have "provided conflicting information" about what happened.

"The preliminary information indicates that a young black male, by the street name of 'BD,' ran from the apartment after the shooting," Brooklyn Park PD spokesman Mark Bruley said. "It is currently unclear what his involvement is in this incident."

Anyone with information should call police at 763-493-8222.
