Police: A woman was shot while waiting in line for pizza in Minneapolis

No arrests have been made and there are no suspects yet.

A woman is recovering following a shooting in downtown Minneapolis early Saturday morning.

Minneapolis police say the 22-year-old – who is not being named – had been waiting in line at Pizza Luce around 3 a.m.

That's when officers in the area say they heard gunshots coming from the northwest corner of 4th Street and 1st Avenue North.

The victim was hit in the torso and taken to the Hennepin County Medical Center for surgery. Authorities say her injury is not life-threatening.

Police don't believe she was the intended target. Bullets also hit an occupied vehicle in the area, damaging two windows. Luckily, the people inside were not hurt.

Another bullet hit a wall of the pizza restaurant and caused some damage. An officer nearby was struck by a piece of cement from the shooting, but wasn't injured.

Authorities believe the shots may have come from someone in a vehicle. No arrests have been made and there are no suspects yet.
