Another 15-year-old boy with gunshot wounds that did not seem to be life-threatening arrived at Hennepin Healthcare, MPD said.

On the 1400 block of 14th Avenue North, officers found a stolen Kia with damage that appeared to be from bullets. MPD says officers also found evidence of gunfire nearby. Police believe both the boys were in the vehicle at the time of the shooting.

Two masked juveniles had been seen earlier in the day in the same Kia driving recklessly and running red lights, according to MPD.
