Police arrested two "potential suspects" in connection to a fatal shooting in south Minneapolis on Saturday, but not before they surrendered following a standoff at a residence along Portland Avenue. 

According to Minneapolis police, officers were sent to the 4100 block of Portland Avenue on a report of a shooting that left a victim a block to the west near the intersection of East 41st Street and Park Avenue. 

Police believe the victim was shot and then "relocated to the intersection in a vehicle."

Officers reported finding the victim – a man in his late 20s – with life-threatening gunshot wounds. The victim was taken to a hospital but did not survive. 

MPD says officers that responded to the scene spotted two "potential suspects" enter a home on the 4100 block of Portland Avenue. A perimeter was created and crisis negotiators and the Minneapolis SWAT team joined the effort, which ended with negotiators finding a way to a peaceful outcome, MPD said. 

"The potential suspects, an adult male, and an adult female exited the house with hands raised. Both were peacefully detained at approximately 2:30 pm.," a press release from MPD says.
