Police responded to a home on the 5000 block of Drew Avenue North around 3:15 a.m. after receiving reports that four people were shot, three men and one woman, the Brooklyn Center Police Department said in a news release.

The victims told police that four men entered the home and "made demands of the victims", before searching the home and then shooting the victims and fleeing the residence, the release notes.

The victims, who have not been identified, were taken to the hospital with injuries that are not life threatening.

Police are still investigating what led to the shooting, but they believe the victims did not know their attackers. However, officials do not believe the public is in any danger.

Investigators are still working on a more detailed description of the suspect, but they are described as four black men ranging in age from their late-teens to their early 20s.

Police are asking anyone with information on the incident to call the Brooklyn Center Police Department.
