A mother and her toddler were wounded in one of two shootings minutes apart Sunday night in south Minneapolis, officials said.

No arrests have been made in either shooting. Police have not addressed a potential motive in either case or identified the victims.

Officers went to an alley in the 2900 block of S. Cedar Avenue about 9:20 p.m. after getting a ShotSpotter notification of gunfire, police said.

They learned that a mother was wounded, and her 2-year-old had been shot in the face. The woman drove to Children's Minnesota hospital. The mother was later transferred to HCMC. Both suffered potentially life-threatening injuries, a statement from police said.

Preliminary information from police indicates a man fired into a vehicle occupied by the woman and her child. Police are investigating to determine if the shooting was targeted, said Police Chief Brian O'Hara.

Regardless, O'Hara called the shooting "absolutely outrageous, it's horrific. … I am most thankful it appears the child will survive."

About 20 minutes later and a few blocks away, officers responded to a house in the 2800 block of 16th Avenue S. on a report of a shooting, police.

A man in his 30s had been shot and was taken to HCMC. Preliminary information indicates the victim and the shooter knew each other, police said.

A search warrant affidavit filed Monday morning by police in Hennepin County District Court disclosed that the man was in critical condition with a gunshot wound to the throat while he was in a first-floor bedroom.

Witnesses told police that the man arrived at the home with a woman and two men, according to the filing. After the gunfire, the woman and the two men fled the home.

After a judge read the affidavit and allowed police to search the home, investigators recovered from inside two live rounds of ammunition, a $1 bill rolled up and containing "unknown contents," five cellphones, drug paraphernalia and one discharged cartridge casing.
