Officers patrolling St. Paul's North End neighborhood heard gunshots early Monday. When police arrived they found three people who had been shot.

Two men, ages 23 and 27, were taken to Regions Hospital and are expected to survive. Police say the girl suffered life-threatening injuries and is in critical condition.

Witnesses tell KSTP-TV that the shots early Monday came from an alley but struck a nearby home. Police say some witnesses have been uncooperative with investigators.

Police don't know what led to the shooting and have not identified any suspects. But authorities say apparently there was a connection between the shooter or shooters and at least one of the victims.
