Woman killed, child injured in shooting in Minneapolis

The shooting was reported around 8 p.m. Saturday.

Police are investigating what they're calling a "likely homicide" in Minneapolis. 

Minneapolis Police Department issued a release Sunday saying that a female victim of the shooting died overnight while at North Memorial Medical Center, where she was rushed to by paramedics after being shot around 8 p.m. 

People reporting hearing gunshots and said they could hear bullets "whizzing through the air." Officers were then flagged down by a man driving a car that had bullet holes in it near 26th St. and Dupont Ave., just a block east of where the shooting is believed to have taken place, at 26th an Emerson. 

Inside the vehicle was a woman in her 20s and a child younger than 5 years old, both of whom were covered in blood. The child was bleeding due to cuts from shards of glass, while the woman didn't have a pulse and was not breathing. She had been shot. 

Officers performed CPR and helped the woman regain a pulse, but she died at the hospital. The child was also taken to North Memorial Medical Center by ambulance. 

Investigators believe that the man driving the car with the woman and child was involved in an altercation with people from another vehicle when shots were fired. 

The victim's identity has not yet been released and an investigation is ongoing.
