The Minneapolis Police Department responded to a shooting on the 1400 block of 6th Street Southeast in Dinkytown Saturday night, according to a police press release.

When police arrived on scene, “numerous” people were running away. One victim was found outside with a gunshot wound, and the other injured victim was found inside the residence.

According to police, the two victims are said to be ages 24 and 18. Both are in critical condition at Hennepin County Medical Center and are expected to survive.

A neighbor told the Minnesota Daily he heard a party going on at the location before police arrived. On New Year’s Eve, two people were shot on the same block. Neither victims had life-threatening injuries in that incident, according to police.

Multiple people were interviewed by police following the Saturday night shooting, and no one is currently in custody.
