Family members told FOX 9 two victims from Tuesday's night's shooting in north Minneapolis have been released from the hospital and the third is expected to be released Wednesday.

A baby girl, her 17-year-old uncle and a 19-year-old pregnant woman were shot at 5:29 p.m. as they stood near the intersection of 29th Street and Lyndale Avenue North.

According to Minneapolis police, the victims were standing around a parked car when a man walked up and started shooting, then fled on foot.

The 14-month-old baby, My'Khelea Smith, was shot in the shoulder. Her 17-year-old uncle, Javar Smith, and 19-year-old Trenay Garner were both shot in the leg.

Police are still searching for a suspect.

Community leaders and neighbors rallied at the intersection on Wednesday afternoon to protest the shooting, holding signs and publicly calling for an end to the violence.

The gathering marked the 12th peace rally on the city's north side this summer, and leaders say enough is enough.


Anyone with any information about this shooting is asked to call 612-692-TIPS (8477).
