Police have issued a warrant for a man wanted for the murder of a 20-year-old woman in Austin, Minnesota, at the weekend.
Austin Police Department identified the victim of Saturday's fatal shooting as Tyesha Tahne Gills, a resident of the city.
Wanted for her killing is Me’Darian Ledale McGruder, a 27-year-old man who also lives in Austin, but who is currently on the run, with Austin PD saying his whereabouts are unknown.
Gills was shot inside her home on 10th Street Northwest just before 2 a.m. Saturday.
She died after being taken to the Mayo Climic Health System in Austin.
"Anyone with information related to [McGruder's] whereabouts should contact the Austin Police Department or their local law enforcement agency," Austin PD said.
