A man has died after a shooting near 38th and Chicago in south Minneapolis, what has become known as George Floyd Square because of the memorial to Floyd's death.
Minneapolis Police Department said its officers responded to ShotSpotter activation at the intersection, and 911 callers reported two people who had been shot were "being brought to the entrance to the area."
An MPD spokesman claimed that officers were "met with interference at the scene," and were told by those there that the victims had already been taken to a hospital.
Police learned that a man in his 30s had been taken to Hennepin County Medical Center with a gunshot wound, and died a short time after.
Further information obtained by police found that the victim and suspect had a verbal argument that resulted in the shooting, with the suspect fleeing in a cream or light colored Suburban from years 2005-2016.
The suspect's vehicle is believed to have sustained gunshot damage.
Despite early reports of two people being shot, only one victim has been confirmed.
The intersection has been barricaded off to traffic since Floyd's death in May, with activists treating it as an autonomous zone where police are not always welcome, leading to tensions with officers in the event of crimes.
