A man has died after being found by police with a gunshot wound outside a home near Grove City, Meeker County.

The Meeker County Sheriff's Office says it was called to the 26100 block of 545th Avenue in Acton Township, south of Grove City, on a report of a shooting at 10:42 p.m. Saturday.

When they arrived, deputies found the injured man, who died at the scene despite lifesaving efforts.

Police have launched a homicide investigation, but have said they don't believe this was a random act and have "no information to indicate that there is an ongoing threat to the public."

The sheriff's office is being aided in the investigation by the Minnesota BCA, State Patrol, and the CEE-VI Drug Task Force.

The victim will be identified at a later date.
