Man dies after shooting on East Lake Street in Minneapolis

It's the city's 70th homicide this year.

Authorities in Minneapolis are investigating a weekend shooting death on the city's south side.

It happened shortly before 7 p.m. Saturday on the 2600 block of East Lake Street, located in the Longfellow neighborhood.
