1 killed, 3 hurt Tuesday night

In the first shooting, at about 8:42 p.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 28, one man was killed and three others were injured. 

According to a Minneapolis Police Department news release, multiple people called 911 to report gunfire near the 2700 block of Bloomington Avenue at about 8:42 p.m. on Sept. 28 and others called 911 saying they'd been shot. 

Police responded to the scene and found three men with apparent gunshot wounds; one of the men was unresponsive. They were taken to the hospital, where the unresponsive man was pronounced dead, police said. 

A fourth man, also with gunshot wounds, later arrived at the hospital via private transport. 

This fatal shooting marked the 70th reportable homicide in Minneapolis this year. The Hennepin County Medical Examiner's Office will release the man's identity in the coming days.
