BROOKLYN PARK, Minn. (FOX 9) - Police have arrested the mother and grandmother of a 2-year-old boy critically hurt in a shooting in Brooklyn Park, Minnesota on Thursday.
The boy's 20-year-old mother and 57-year-old grandmother were taken into custody Friday in connection to the shooting and "covering up the crime after the fact," the department states.
