OAKDALE, Minn. (AP) — An Oakdale church plans a prayer vigil after an apparent random shooting left a 9-year-old boy dead and his mother and another woman wounded.

The vigil is scheduled for 7 p.m. Tuesday at Holy Cross Lutheran church.

Craft tables will be available for those who want to write a note or light a candle in memory of a friend or loved one.

Police say a 34-year-old Oakdale man randomly fired at passing vehicles Monday evening in a neighborhood in the St. Paul suburb.

A boy riding in a vehicle with his mother was killed. His 39-year-old mother was injured. A 68-year-old woman in another vehicle was shot in the hand.

Police are holding the suspect on suspicion of second-degree murder and first-degree assault.
