A man was fatally shot in an alley in Minneapolis early Wednesday, police said. 

At 12:48 a.m., Minneapolis police responded to a report of a ShotSpotter activation on the 3500 block of North Bryant Avenue, where they found a man in the alley who had been shot, police said.

Lifesaving measures were performed and he was transported to the hospital, where he died soon after arriving. 

Officers searched the area, making contact with a man who was "hostile and resistant to the officer's investigation," Minneapolis PD said. Evidence indicated he was a person of interest in the shooting, so he was detained and interviewed by police. 

The suspect, a 30-year-old man, was later arrested and booked into jail for probable cause murder. 

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

Anyone with information on the incident is asked to call CrimeStoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477). Tips may be submitted electronically at www.CrimeStoppersMN.org. All Tips are anonymous and persons providing information leading to an arrest may be eligible for a financial reward.
