Police in Minneapolis are investigating a possible homicide after a man died after being found unresponsive at a Ventura Village apartment.

Police are called the property in the 1900 block of Park Avenue South at 3 p.m. on Saturday, and arrived to find paramedics performing CPR on the man after what was initially reported as a medical, possibly heart, emergency.
