A man who was gunned down in north Minneapolis Thursday evening died after being transported to North Memorial Medical Center in critical condition. 

Minneapolis police spokesperson John Elder said MPD learned of the victim's death early Friday morning. The victim was found on the ground in the area of the 1600 block of West Broadway Avenue after a report of "the sound of shots fired" around 5:50 p.m. Thursday. 

Officers found the man suffering from multiple gunshot wounds and he was immediately transported to North Memorial in Robbinsdale. Elder said the seriousness of the man's injuries prompted MPD's homicide unit to begin an investigation at the scene Thursday evening, with police then learning of the victim's death Friday. 

The victim's identity will eventually be released to the public by the Hennepin County Medical Examiner's Office. 

No further information has been provided.
