Warrant issued for mother suspected of shooting daughter in leg


Authorities are looking for a woman accused of shooting her 18-year-old daughter in the leg in North St. Paul early Sunday morning and fleeing.

FOX 9 reports a warrant has been issued for 35-year-old Tonya Hale Raleigh.

"She is somewhere in the metro. We're trying to find her," Capt. Dustin Nikituk with North St. Paul police told the Pioneer Press.

Officers were called to an apartment building in the 2300 block of 11th Avenue S. around 4:40 a.m. for what's being described as an "alcohol-fueled" domestic disturbance.

A witness told FOX 9 that the shooting victim fled the apartment with her boyfriend and was found about a block away. She was taken to the hospital with a gunshot wound to her leg. Her injuries are non-life threatening, according to police.

The Star Tribune reported a SWAT team was deployed to search for Raleigh, the suspected shooter.

The apartment complex where the shooting occurred and some nearby apartments were evacuated for several hours while police tried to make contact with the armed suspect, who police thought was inside the apartment.

According to the Pioneer Press, the East Metro SWAT Team sent robots into the building around 11 a.m. to find it empty.

Residents, who waited in Metro Transit buses to keep warm, were allowed back into their homes around 11:30 a.m.

Anyone with information regarding the incident or Raleigh's whereabouts is asked to call 651-767-0648.
