Police investigating 2 more homicides after shootings in Minneapolis

There have been at least 46 homicides in Minneapolis this year.

A gunshot victim from a Saturday shooting in Minneapolis died Monday, and another homicide is under investigation after gunfire erupted on the city's North Side early Tuesday morning. 

The latest homicide happened around 2:43 a.m. Tuesday on the 400 block of 15th Avenue, with Minneapolis police saying two victims were standing outside "when a group of people approached and shot them." 

The victims, both men, were able to transport themselves to a hospital, where one of them died and the other was in serious condition but expected to survive. 

No arrests have been made as of this writing. 

Victim dies 2 days after Saturday shooting

According to Minneapolis police, a fight broke out on the 300 block of West Broadway Avenue around 2:06 a.m. Saturday, July 3, and "multiple people began shooting at each other." 

While en route to the scene, police were flagged down by people in a private vehicle who were transporting a gunshot victim to the hospital. The officers provided medical attention before paramedics took over. 

The victim, a man believed to be in his 30s, was taken to North Memorial Medical Center in grave condition. Police were informed that the man died July 5. 

Two others later arrived at North Memorial suffering from non-critical gunshot wounds. They were struck in the same location where the fight led to shots fired on West Broadway.
