Man shot in N. Minneapolis on Saturday has died of his injuries

No one is in custody yet.

A weekend shooting in north Minneapolis is now officially a homicide case.

A man who was found shot on the 4600 block of Lyndale Avenue North on Saturday afternoon died of his injuries several hours later, according to an update from the Minneapolis Police Department:

According to the update, police were summoned to the scene by a ShotSpotter activation as well as 911 calls, and they found the unidentified male suffering from a gunshot wound.

They began lifesaving measures and were soon relieved by paramedics, who transported the man to North Memorial Health Care, where he would later pass away.

One person was initially detained in the case but was soon released, and there is no one in custody now. 

The victim, who was in his 30s, will be identified by the medical examiner in the coming days. 

Minneapolis homicide investigators are now investigating.

As the Star Tribune noted on Friday, Minneapolis has seen 37 homicides so far this year — a significant jump in the number of homicides at the same time last year. 

Anyone with information on Saturday's shooting is urged to submit a tip (which can be done anonymously) to CrimeStoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477) or www.CrimeStoppersMN.org.
