3 injured in Brooklyn Park shooting, 7 arrests made

Three people were injured in a shooting near 3500 Brookdale Drive in Brooklyn Park Tuesday evening, police said.

Seven men were arrested in connection with the shooting, Brooklyn Park police said.

Just after 4:30 p.m., officers responded to a call of a shooting and were given the description of a possible suspect vehicle that was leaving the scene. Officers found that vehicle in the 4900 block of Brookdale Drive a short time later and found two people suffering from gunshot wounds inside.

At the reported scene of the shooting, officers found another person suffering from gunshot wounds.

All of the victims were brought to a hospital with serious but non-life-threatening injuries, police say.

A shooting scene was found on the 3600 block of Brookdale Avenue, where officers found 15 spent casings.

As officers investigated the shooting, they saw a vehicle that was believed to be involved in the shooting leaving a home. Officers tried to pull over that vehicle but the driver sped off and got onto Highway 252 before pulling over. The driver was then arrested, and police say the vehicle was connected to the shooting, although no other details were immediately available.

Officers made a separate traffic stop on the 900 block of Brookdale Drive and arrested two additional people believed to be involved.

Investigators also served search warrants at two residences in question, which led to more arrests and the recovery of six guns, police say.

The people involved are believed to all know each other, according to police.

The case remains under investigation but police say they believe all suspects are accounted for and in custody.
