Authorities are seeking a suspect involved in a shooting in Woodbury Sunday evening.

According to authorities, police responded to the 700 block of Lake Ridge Drive at 6:20 p.m. on a report of a shooting.


Authorities found a victim upon arrival, who was transported to a nearby hospital and is currently stable.

The victim and the suspect knew each other, police said, and the incident was not random.

Authorities said witnesses reported they believed they saw two vehicles leave the area at high speeds following the shooting. One vehicle was a gray or silver sedan, and the other a dark SUV, according to Woodbury police, who added that four to six people were involved.

There is no threat to the public in the area of Lake Ridge Drive, authorities said, and Woodbury police and the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension continue to investigate.
