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."

The victim's identity will be released by the Hennepin County Medical Examiner's Office in the coming days.
