MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Minneapolis police say a 2-month-old boy is in critical condition after being struck by a stray bullet around 9 p.m. Thursday.

Police spokeswoman Cyndi Barrington says it appears the child was with his father outside a home on the city's north side. Barrington says the father reported hearing a bang and then noticing his son had been hit.

The child was in critical condition at Hennepin County Medical Center.

No suspect was in custody and Barrington says a motive was not known.
