The 1900 block of 1st Avenue South.

Minneapolis PD's homicide unit is investigating after a man was found dead in the common area of an apartment building.

The discovery was made after police responded to a report of a person shot on the 1900 block of 1st Avenue South, a couple blocks south of I-94 south of downtown Minneapolis.

The body was found in the common area of the building, with police saying that "this does not appear to be a random act of violence."

Police are following up on leads from the scene, but at this stage nobody is in custody.

If confirmed as a homicide once the victim's cause of death has been determined by the Hennepin County Medical Examiner, it would be the fourth homicide in Minneapolis since last weekend.

Anyone with information is asked to call CrimeStoppers anonymously at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
