OAKDALE, Minn. (AP) -- Oakdale police say a gunman killed a 10-year-old and wounded two other people in an apparent random shooting.
KMSP-TV reports several bursts of gunfire erupted Monday night near a Rainbow Foods store in the eastern Twin Cities suburb.
Oakdale Police Chief Bill Sullivan says the gunman fired at a car carrying the 10-year-old and the child's mother. Sullivan says the child died and the mother was wounded in the arm.
A woman in another car was struck and wounded in the hand.
The police chief tells the Associated Press a 33-year-old man is in custody and is being questioned by investigators. The St. Paul Pioneer Press reports the man lives in the neighborhood.
Sullivan says authorities believe there are no other suspects and there is no danger to the public.
