Two people injured in freeway shooting

Two women were injured by gunfire early Sunday morning after multiple shots were fired at the Uber vehicle they were riding in on I-394W, according to Minneapolis police. 

Five women were traveling in the Uber car around 2:30 a.m. after leaving downtown Minneapolis when someone started shooting the vehicle near Dunwoody Boulevard on I-394W.

When the car got to Penn Avenue, more shots were fired into the back of the car — hitting two women inside.

One passenger was hit by gunfire in the arm and another was shot in the back. Both are being treated at HCMC for non-life threatening injuries.

Law enforcement officials shut down a stretch of I-394 for a short time to gather evidence. No arrests have been made.

Police are asking anyone with information about the shooting to call CrimeStoppers at 1-800–222–TIPS (8477). Anyone who provides information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person behind the shooting is eligible for a financial reward. The case number is 16-009526
