MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Police have arrested three suspects involved in a Brooklyn Park shooting Friday evening.
The Brooklyn Park Police Department received several calls just before 4 p.m. reporting shots fired in the 6900 block of West Broadway.
Officers arrived at the scene and noticed several cars leaving the area. Police believed a suspect was barricaded inside an apartment complex and was armed with a gun. SWAT and crisis negotiators were on the scene assisting, trying to get ahold of the suspect to come out of the residence.
Eventually, they arrested three suspects in connection to the shooting.
Officers do not know what started the event, but they say there were multiple shooters and an exchange of a large volume of gunfire in the neighborhood.
BPPD say they received several calls earlier in the day about a domestic situation down the same street involving a gun. Police are unsure if the two are related.
Authorities say numerous houses were hit by gunfire, but they do not believe anyone was struck.
The investigation into this incident is ongoing.
