Minneapolis Police say multiple people were shot in North Minneapolis Friday night.

The shooting happened at Lowry Avenue North and Knox Avenue North in Minneapolis.

Minneapolis Police Spokesman John Elder says the injuries are all non-life threatening.

"We have two vehicles traveling northbound on Knox, driving recklessly," explained Elder. "They get up to the stop sign on Knox and Lowry...one pulls up to the other and begins shooting at it."

Elder said the vehicle being shot at tried to drive away but was hit by a third vehicle. Both vehicles stalled.

The vehicle doing the shooting drove away while still firing shots, and then fled the scene.

Four people were taken to North Memorial Medical Center.

No further information is available at this time.
