A 2-year-old boy was shot and critically wounded Thursday in a Brooklyn Park apartment, where several adults were inside. One of the adults ran from the scene, police said.
The gunfire occurred about 7:10 a.m. at the Huntington Place Apartments in the 5800 block of 73rd Avenue, police said. Officers responding to a 911 call found the boy and provided aid and cardiopulmonary resuscitation. The child’s condition was critical, according to police.
Someone in the house told 911 that the boy shot himself in the abdomen, according to emergency dispatch audio. A gun was found near the boy, the dispatch also said.
The man who fled goes by the street name “BD,” police said. “It is currently unclear what his involvement is in this incident,” a statement from police read.
