Man dies in Minneapolis shooting Thursday night

Police believe the victim and suspect were familiar with each other.

A man died in a shooting in Minneapolis Thursday evening, the Minneapolis Police Department says. 

Police and firefighters responded to a report of a shooting near 22nd Street East and Oakland Avenue South at 8:39 p.m., where they found a man, believed to be in his 20s, suffering from a gunshot wound, MPD spokesperson John Elder said in a news release. 

The man did not have a pulse and wasn't breathing, police say. Officers began life-saving measures but he died at the scene. The medical examiner will identify him in the coming days. 

His death marks the 22nd homicide in Minneapolis this year. The 22nd homicide of 2020 in Minneapolis didn't happen until June 15. 

Police believe the victim and suspect "likely were familiar with each other" and the suspect fled before police got to the scene.
