Two men suffered non-life threatening injuries from gunshot wounds following a shooting in the area of North 4th Street and 2nd Avenue North around 2:45 a.m.

Police had heard the gunshots and responded to the area within minutes, the police department says.

They were unable to locate any victims at the scene. The two men were later brought to the hospital, and police say they were injured in the earlier shooting.

One man suffered a grazing wound to his head, while the other was shot in the leg.

Minneapolis police said this incident isn't connected to this weekend's Twin Cities Pride events. (Police said they were increasing patrols for Pride after the shooting at an Orlando gay nightclub earlier this month.)

The shooting appeared to be between two groups of people who are familiar with each other, police said.

No arrests have been made, according to the Star Tribune.

Investigators are interviewing people who were in the area and collecting surveillance video, but they're asking anyone with information on the shooting to contact the Minneapolis Police Department tip line at 612-692-8477or call CrimeStoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
