Man shot dead in north Minneapolis early Friday morning

It's the 22nd homicide in Minneapolis this year.

Police in Minneapolis are investigating the city's 22nd homicide of 2019 after a fatal shooting early Friday.

Officers were sent to the 3200 block of Lyndale Avenue North just after 1 a.m. by ShotSpotter activation, around the same time a 911 came in reporting a shooting in the area.

When officers and paramedics arrived they found the victim – a man – outside, giving emergency aid before he was taken to North Memorial Hospital.

He died shortly after arriving at the hospital.

Police have canvassed the area and spoken with a number of people nearby. The victim's identity and cause of death haven't been revealed yet.

At this stage, nobody is in custody and there's no description of the shooter.

It's the latest in a spate of killings in the city this week, coming after bodies were found on a bike path near the Guthrie Theater and on railroad tracks in Northeast Minneapolis that have both been ruled homicides.

Friday's shooting marks the 22nd homicide in Minneapolis in 2019, which is more than there was this time in 2018.

By Aug. 27, 2018, there had been 20 homicides in the city, though this in turn was a drop on the 26 that had happened by the same date in 2017.
