Investigation underway after man dies in west-central MN shooting

It happened in the city of Renville.

A man was killed this week in a shooting in the west-central Minnesota town of Renville. 

Reports say it happened on the city's Main Street late Thursday night, with officers finding a man suffering from a gunshot wound at the scene.

Per the Star Tribune, the victim was rushed to a nearby ball field to meet a helicopter for emergency transport, but he died before he could be airlifted. 

Police subsequently arrested a 26-year-old man for the crime, and he's currently in the Renville County Jail awaiting charges, KSTP reports. 

The station says it's believed the suspect and the victim knew each other, and that there's no further threat to the public. 

Neither of the men has been named yet, though the victim will be formally identified by the Midwest Medical Examiner's Office.

The city of Renville, which is approximately 107 miles west of Minneapolis, has a population of about 1,200.
