BROOKLYN PARK, Minn. (FOX 9) - A child is in critical condition after they were shot inside an apartment in Brooklyn Park, Minnesota Thursday.
At 7:11 a.m., officers responded to a 911 call at an apartment on the 5800 block of 73rd Avenue, according to the Brooklyn Park Police Department. The caller reported a 2-year-old child had been shot.
When officers arrived, they located the child and provided first aid and CPR. The child was eventually transported to a nearby hospital, where police said they remain in critical condition.
While there were at least five adults, including the child’s mother, in the apartment at the time, police say they’re getting very little cooperation. Officers say every witness seems to be giving a different account of what happened.
"It's very difficult to investigate something like this when people don’t want to be honest about what occurred," said Deputy Chief Mark Bruley.
A young man reportedly ran from the apartment after the shooting, but police said it is unclear what his involvement in the incident is.
The shooting remains under investigation.
Anyone with information regarding the shooting is asked to contact the Brooklyn Park Police Department at 763-493-8222.
