A Thursday morning shooting in Minneapolis has left one person dead.

According to the Minneapolis Police Department, reports of a shooting in a parking lot on the 2200 block of Lyndale Avenue South in Uptown came in just before 3 a.m.

When officers arrived, they found one man suffering from a gunshot wound outside of a business. Officers provided medical care before the victim was eventually transported to the Hennepin County Medical Center.

Minneapolis police later learned the victim had died. 

A homicide detective and the Minneapolis Crime Lab reported to the scene as part of the investigation. A preliminary investigation indicates two people engaged in a dispute and shots were fired. Evidence also indicates the two people knew each other, according to MPD.
