Four wounded in party shooting

The Star Tribune reported that three people are in jail after wounding four in a shooting at a Lakeville house party around 12a.m. Sunday morning.

The four victims sustained non-life-threatening injuries and were transported to Hennepin County Medical Center, according to Lakeville police.

The man who fired the shots that wounded the four people, two of whom were 17-years-old, fled in a car with two others, according to the Pioneer Press.

Police then arrested the three, two of whom are currently in Dakota County jail awaiting charges, and another who initially gave police a false name is currently in a juvenile detention center.

The shooting is believed to have been caused by the shooter being asked to leave the party.

Police officers had been called to the home on previous occasions due to complaints about noise and domestic calls, Lakeville police Sgt. Mike Sheady said, according to the Pioneer Press.

Etta Tyson, a resident of the home, said her grandmother, two sisters, infant son, and niece were not at home at the time of the incident.
