A four-year-old child and two adults who were shot Tuesday night in the 3600 block of Penn Av. N. were not victims of a random shooting, according to the Minneapolis police department, an indication that the adult victims and the shooter knew each other. 

The shooting victims are all expected to live, according to authorities. The two adults remain sedated at the hospital and police have been unable to interview them. The public is not at risk and it appears the shooting was an isolated incident, according to an update from the Minneapolis police distributed late Wednesday morning.

The shooting suspect was identified as a black male, 5'8" tall with a heavy build. Anyone with information was asked to call the police department TIPS line at 612-692-TIPS (8477).
