MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — North St. Paul Police are searching for a mother accused of shooting her daughter in the leg after a dispute on Sunday.

According to authorities, an active pickup and hold has been filed for 35-year-old Tonya Hale Raleigh, the sole suspect in Sunday’s shooting, which occurred in the area of 12th Avenue and McKnight Road.

Police say Raleigh shot her 18-year-old daughter after a domestic disturbance reportedly fueled by alcohol and fled the area.

Her daughter was found with non-life threatening injuries and transported to the hospital via ambulance.

Authorities searched for Raleigh throughout the day on Sunday, focusing their efforts on a nearby apartment building. Some residents were evacuated during the search.
