Minneapolis police are investigating another homicide after a shooting happened around 9 p.m. Saturday on the 2600 block of North Upton Avenue on the city's North Side. 

ShotSpotter was activated at 9:04 p.m., followed by 911 callers reporting a shooting. Officers arrived at the scene and didn't find a victim, but minutes later they learned that a man had arrived at North Memorial Medical Center – located less than a mile from the shooting – with a gunshot wound. 

The victim died at the hospital a short time after arriving. His identity has not been released. 

Police were able to find a location where a shooting took place on the 2600 block of Upton Avenue and the Crime Lab processed the scene.
