Minneapolis has registered its 68th homicide of 2020 after a man was shot dead in the south of the city on Wednesday evening.

Police responded to reports of shots fired around 9:30 p.m. in the area of the 3500 block of 19th Avenue South.

When officers arrived, they found a man on the ground who wasn't breathing and didn't have a pulse.

Despite CPR and attempts to treat the wound, the man was pronounced dead at the scene.

No arrests have been made, but Minneapolis Police Department spokesman John Elder: "Preliminary investigation reveals that, based on evidence at the scene, the victim and suspect(s) likely knew one another."
