Police: 'Dispute' between people in two vehicles leads to fatal crash

It happened in north Minneapolis Thursday afternoon.

Police say a passenger died after a crash that followed a "dispute" between the occupants of two vehicles in north Minneapolis Thursday.

The incident was reported at 2:55 p.m. on the 2200 block of Aldrich Avenue North, with Minneapolis Police Department saying its officers arrived at the scene to find a crashed vehicle and a male passenger who was "gravely injured."

That person died a short time after arriving at Hennepin County Medical Center.

Police say their investigation determined that the occupants of two vehicles "were engaged in a dispute" as they drove north on Aldrich Avenue from the 2100 block.

As a result, one vehicle left the road and struck a tree, with the other vehicle fleeing northbound.

MPD says that the initial 911 also reported gunshots, but the rest of its statement does not confirm if guns were involved at all.
