A woman is fighting for her life after being shot in Minneapolis. 

At 5:59 p.m. Tuesday, Minneapolis Police Department says it was alerted to a shooting near the intersection of 21st St. E. and 15th Ave. S. in the Ventura Village neighborhood, with officers finding a woman at the scene who was suffered a "potentially life-threatening gunshot wound."

She was taken to an area hospital where her current condition is unknown.

MPD says there may have been "an altercation between a group of people" that "escalated to gunfire," adding that the dispute may have involved people "who have a former dating relationship."

Police have not identified the victim or any suspects, and no arrests have been announced. 

14-year-old shot about 30 minutes earlier

About 30 minutes before the woman was shot in the Ventura Village neighborhood, a 14-year-old suffered what police described as a "potentially life-threatening gunshot wound" from an apparent accidental discharge at an apartment in North Minneapolis.
