A man in his 30s was killed in a shooting at a gas station in Minneapolis Wednesday evening.
The shooting happened at 6:10 p.m. at the Marathon gas station and Stop N Shop store on the 1700 block of East Lake Street in south Minneapolis.
According to MPD, a Third Precinct sergeant was in the area of East Lake Street and Cedar Avenue when he heard a "volley of gunshots" to his west. Police also received a ShotSpotter activation on and a 911 call that someone had been shot.
Officers found the victim and began medical care until paramedics arrived. They eventually pronounced him dead.
Police believe the victim was outside of a business in the area when a car pulled up and a person got out, firing multiple rounds at the victim, hitting him at least once.
The suspect then fled before officers arrived. No arrests have been made.
MPD spokesman John Elder said that police believe the suspect and victim knew each other and that this was a "targeted attack."
The victim has not been identified. The medical examiner will officially identify him in the coming days.
This was the second fatal shooting at the Stop N Shop in the past few months. Ryan Decker, 46, of St. Cloud, was killed in a shooting following an argument with a stranger at the store on March 24. Chaz Stubblefield, 33, of Minneapolis, has been charged in connection to his killing.
According to MPD data, there have been 39 homicides in the city this year (as of June 15).
