Teen surrenders in shooting case of Minneapolis baby


Police say a 17-year-old turned himself in early Tuesday in connection with the shooting of a baby in north Minneapolis last week, WCCO reports.

The 2-month-old's father initially told police that he had been outside in the 2400 block of Emerson Avenue North on Sept. 5 when a stray bullet hit his infant son in the neck, critically injuring the child.

But police later learned that the man and his son had been indoors, and that the baby's teen uncle had accidentally fired the shot. The teen fled, and police have been seeking him. Police said the teen had a handgun.

The teen turned himself in at City Hall at about 1 a.m. Charges are pending.

The baby at last report was in critical but stable condition, the Star Tribune reports.
