ST. CLOUD, Minn. -- A 15-year-old boy was among the four people hospitalized Wednesday following a shooting in St. Cloud. 

The St. Cloud Police Department says the shooting happened around 5:47 p.m. in the alley near the intersection of 6th Avenue and 11th Street South, in a residential neighborhood close to the St. Cloud State University campus. 

According to investigators, multiple people were involved in an argument before shots rang out. The victims were described as three men between the ages of 19 and 21, and one 15-year-old boy. All are in serious but stable condition.

A 21-year-old suffered a gunshot wound to the chest, another 21-year-old was shot in the head, the 19-year-old was shot in the elbow, and the 15-year-old boy was shot in the shoulder and neck. The man who was shot in the head was discharged on Thursday.

Brianca Carter, who lives in the neighborhood, said that she knows the youngest victim. "That's a family friend of mine," she said, adding that this summer has seen an increase in crime in the area. 

No arrests have been made in the shooting, but police say there is no threat to the public. The shooting is under investigation.
