MINNEAPOLIS (AP) " Minneapolis police say six people have been wounded in two likely gang-related shootings in downtown Minneapolis.

Authorities are investigating whether the shootings early Monday are connected. They have arrested a suspect, but don't yet know in which shooting the person may have been involved.

Police say two men suffered non-life threatening gunshot wounds in a shooting about 1 a.m. outside the First Precinct police station. They were treated at Hennepin County Medical Center. A handgun was recovered in a nearby parking lot.

About 15 minutes later, less than a block away, police say three men and a male juvenile were shot and injured. Police say three of the four are expected to be OK. The fourth victim is hospitalized with a gunshot wound to the chest.
