One person was fatally shot in Richfield Friday afternoon. 

The shooting happened just after 2 p.m. in the parking lot of 901 East 77th Street, with Richfield Police Department reporting that the man suffered "numerous gunshot wounds to his upper body" and was unresponsive upon police and medics arriving. 

Lifesaving measures were attempted at the scene. Police have not confirmed the man's death, but a blue tent covered a body near a car in the parking lot as police were interviewing people at the scene around 2:45 p.m. 

"Witnesses reported seeing a passenger car with two male occupants fleeing the area. There did not appear to be any immediate danger to the community," Richfield PD said. "This is an active incident and is under investigation." 

Anyone with information about the shooting is asked to call the Richfield Police Department at 612-861-9800.
