MINNEAPOLIS - Investigators are hoping the allure of a $1,000 reward will break open a stalled case involving the shooting of a toddler, a pregnant woman and a teenager in Minneapolis.
Officers were called to a home on the 2900 block of Lyndale Avenue North just before 5:30 p.m. August 20th on reports of gunshots fired. When they arrived they found a 14 month-old female who was shot in the shoulder, and a 19 year-old pregnant female shot in the leg. Police later learned that a 17-year-old boy was also shot in the leg and taken to a local hospital in a private vehicle.
Witnesses describe the shooter as a black male, 17 to 21 years-old and 5 feet 10 inches to 6 feet tall with a medium build. At the time of the incident the suspect was wearing khaki or blue shorts, a grey hoodie and a darker tan fishing type hat with a brim all the way around it.
The suspect was last seen running east on 30th Avenue North and then north on 6th Street North.
