Minneapolis detectives are investigating a shooting that severely injured a teenage girl Wednesday night in north Minneapolis’ McKinley Neighborhood, police said.
The incident occurred sometime between 8:10 and 8:30 p.m. outside of a house on the 3200 block of N. 6th St., according to a police report. The 17-year-old victim was sitting inside a vehicle parked in front of the house when she was shot by an unknown assailant.
Police said she was taken by ambulance to a nearby hospital, where she remained in critical condition on Thursday morning, a police spokeswoman said.
Authorities haven’t released any details about the suspected gunman.
On Thursday afternoon, the street was no longer blocked off and no one appeared to be inside the house where the victim was parked.
Party signs sat near the home’s front door, but there was nothing else in the yard.
The block where the shooting occurred sits near the intersection of Lyndale Avenue and Lowry Avenue near a small grocery store.
In February, a man was stabbed and killed by his daughter in a house on the same block. The man’s death is the second homicide since the beginning of the year in the McKinley neighborhood, which didn’t record any homicides in 2016.
