A 15-year-old boy became the 95th and final homicide victim in 2021 Minneapolis following a shooting on the city's Northside on New Year's Eve.
Minneapolis Police Department says its officers were called to a shooting in the area of 2400 Dupont Ave. N. at 4:30 p.m., with the 911 caller saying one male was down and another wounded male left the scene in a vehicle.
They found the 15-year-old with a gunshot wound that ultimately proved fatal at the scene.
A short time later, a 16-year-old boy with non-life-threatening gunshot wounds arrived at North Memorial Hospital by private transport.
According to MPD, the two boys were walking when shots were fired from a vehicle, with the suspects having fled the scene by the time police arrived.
At this time, no arrests have been made. The victim will be identified in the coming days.
