Minneapolis triple shooting injures 3, including 4-year-old


Police are looking for a shooter who on Tuesday night opened fire on people sitting in a parked SUV in Minneapolis, leaving two men and a 4-year-old injured, the Star Tribune reports. The injuries were not life-threatening, police said.

The vehicle was in the 3600 block of Penn Avenue N., a police spokeswoman Cyndi Barrington told the newspaper. She said the initial investigation suggests the shooter had approached the SUV at about 9:30 p.m. and an argument was sparked. Shots were fired and the shooter ran, Barrington told the Star Tribune.

A witness told the Star Tribune a bullet wound was visible near the child's ankle.

It was not immediately clear whether the victims knew the shooter, WCCO reported.

The three victims were in stable condition at North Memorial Medical Center, KSTP reported:
