Two women were shot and wounded early Saturday morning in downtown Minneapolis after they were caught in a crossfire between two other cars.

Police say the two women were driving in the North Loop neighborhood on N. 2nd Avenue just after 2:20 a.m. when they were struck by bullets fired by people shooting at each from two other cars between 5th and 6th Streets. The two women were able to drive to Hennepin County Medical Center, where they were treated for minor injuries from the stray bullets, police spokesman John Elder said.

Police arrested two men and one woman in connection with the shooting; they remain in Hennepin County jail on pending second-degree assault charges. Police didn’t have additional details on the shooting or the women’s injuries.
