Minneapolis police confirm city's 4th homicide since Saturday night

The latest shooting happened on West Broadway Avenue on the city's North Side.

A shooting victim died after being transported to North Memorial Medical Center in "grave condition" Monday morning, according to Minneapolis Police Department.

Police were alerted to the gunfire via a Shotspotter notification at 11:08 a.m. in the area of the 1600 block of West Broadway Avenue. Officers arrived to find a man believed to be in his 30s suffering from a gunshot wound. He wasn't breathing and didn't have a pulse. 

Officers at the scene performed CPR and wound management before paramedics transported the man to the hospital, where he was pronounced dead. 

Police spokesperson John Elder issued a release saying preliminary information "indicates that people got into a verbal argument that escalated," ultimately leading to one person pulling a gun and shooting. 

No arrests have been made and homicide detectives are working the case. 

It marks the fourth homicide in Minneapolis in the past three days, or better said as the fourth homicide within a span of approximately 38 hours. On Saturday around 9 p.m., a drive-by shooting on the 600 block of West Broadway left one injured and one dead, and there were two additional fatal shootings on Sunday night.
