The Minneapolis police chief has reacted to the recent shooting of a three-year-old on Friday, saying police are not the biggest threat to safety.

Chief Medaria Arradondo said:

“The biggest threat to public safety in our city, and particularly to our African-American community, is not the police."

“We have an epidemic right now of unequivocal gun violence, particularly in our African-American communities. And that must stop.”

Arradondo's remarks came on Saturday when he responded to the shooting during a press conference.

Law enforcement responded to calls about a child being shot at 9:47 p.m.

The child was initially thought to be 10 years old, but information later disclosed the child was actually 3 years old.

When police arrived at the location, the child had suffered a critical gunshot wound.

The child was then transported to the hospital in a squad car.

Chief Arradondo said the officers “made the right choice.”

He added the officer's quick thinking saved the child's life.

Minneapolis police chiefs after the warned shootings have hit unprecedented levels:

“I’ve never seen the gun violence like it is,” Brooklyn Park Police Chief Craig Enevoldsen told local Fox 9.

“Enevoldsen and police chiefs from Crystal, Maple Grove, Plymouth, and New Hope, spoke to FOX 9 about the gun violence they are seeing in their communities,” Fox 9 reported.

Community activists pleaded with the city council for change following the shooting.

"We're sick and tired of the shootings of our children,"  the Rev. Harding Smith with Spiritual Church of God said.

"We are sick and tired of the shootings of our young boys and girls."

Earlier this month, a judge has ordered the city to hire more police officers.

The decision came following the ruling in favor of a group that filed a lawsuit against the city council for raging crime after defunding the police.

Last year, the Democrat-run City slashed $8 million from its police department's funding.

Leftist council members pushed to defund the police in Minneapolis since the death of George Floyd, who died last year.

Steve Fletcher, who represents Ward 3 in Minneapolis, said:

"In 2021, our city will implement mental health emergency response, support community safety programs, add violence prevention capacity, and improve police accountability."

A 30-year-old man also suffered gunshot wounds and was taken to hospital.
