Father, 5-Year-Old Son Shot In Minneapolis
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Authorities say a father and his 5-year-old son were shot in Minneapolis less than a block from where an unarmed man was recently killed by police.
Investigators say there's no indication the shooting Thursday is related to ongoing protests over the death of Jamar Clark.
Police say the 40-year-old father was shot in the arm and behind while the boy was shot in the leg. Their injuries are not believed to be life-threatening. Officials say the shooter fled in a blue Cadillac.
The shooting is several blocks from the police precinct station where demonstrators have gathered over the fatal shooting of Clark.
