1 dead, 1 injured in Minneapolis shooting, city's 39th homicide this year

Police were treating one victim when another victim was found nearby.

There have now been 39 homicides in Minneapolis this year after a man was killed and another injured in a shooting late Wednesday near a Little Earth housing project. 

The gunfire was reported via ShotSpotter at 10:57 p.m. on the 2400 block of S 18th Ave. Not long after the notification, a man suffering from a gunshot wound was located by responding officers. He was being treated for non-critical injuries when officers heard more gunshots. 

Moments later, police found another man from the second round of gunfire who was gravely injured. Officers and paramedics attempted lifesaving measures, but the man was pronounced dead at the scene. 

Video posted to Facebook by Jolene Jones, whom the Star Tribune says is a former board president for the Little Earth Residents Association, shows some of the aftermath of the violence, including the moment when a second victim is discovered as police were treating the original victim for what appeared to be a gunshot wound to the left arm. 

The identities of the gunshot victims have not been released. The original shooting victim was taken to Hennepin Healthcare for treatment. 

No arrests have been made.
