Four people were injured by gunfire Saturday night at a graduation party at Casey Lake Park in North St. Paul, police said.

Officers were called about 10:44 p.m. to the park in the 2100 block of 17th Avenue on reports of an assault involving gunfire, according to a news release. When law enforcement arrived at the park, officers found that four people had suffered gunshot wounds.

All four were taken to an area hospital for treatment, but their injuries are not believed to be life-threatening, said Sgt. Chris Ahles of the North St. Paul Police Department,.

Reports of the shooting drew a massive law enforcement response from several agencies, including North St. Paul, Ramsey County and Washington County sheriff’s offices, Minnesota state patrol, Maplewood, Oakdale, Woodbury, White Bear Lake and St. Paul police departments. They arrived at a “chaotic” scene at the gathering of more than 60 people, Ahles said.

Authorities say there is no threat to the public. The shooting is being investigated by the North St. Paul police department and the Ramsey County sheriff’s office. Investigators ask anyone with information on the shooting to call 651-747-2444.
