A Minneapolis South High School student was one of three people injured in a drive-by shooting near the school Friday afternoon, authorities said.
Police were called to the 2200 block of East Lake Street shortly after students were dismissed from school around 3 p.m. The student, a man and a woman, were taken to the hospital with life-threatening injuries, according to a news release from the Minneapolis Police Department.
Police said they believe the three were on the sidewalk when shots were fired from a moving vehicle.
The relationship, if any, between the victims and the shooter was unknown. No one has been arrested.
In an email to parents, Minneapolis Public Schools Associate Superintendent Michael Walker asked them to check in with their children.
“I have no more information and I know you will all join me in keeping this student in our thoughts and prayers for a full recovery,” he wrote in the message.
