Minneapolis Police are looking for the suspect or suspects in the shooting of two Target Field clean-up crew members at Target Field Light Rail Station early Saturday morning.

One person is in critical condition, and both victims were taken to Hennepin County Medical Center, according to police. One victim was shot in the stomach.

Names of the two victims have not been released.

Investigators are following up on leads and do not believe this was a random crime.

The victims were not employees of the Minnesota Twins, but were contracted workers who clean up after games, according to police.

The Minnesota Twins had played the Kansas City Royals on Friday night and had another game Saturday afternoon.

Anyone with any information should text 847 411, and enter "MPD" followed by the tip, or call the tipline at 612-692-TIPS (8477). All texts are anonymous.
