The shooting happened at the intersection of East 21st Street and Bloomington Avenue, just one block south of Franklin Avenue, at 4:15 p.m.

The victim was apparently sitting in a car when the shooter approached the vehicle and opened fire.

The suspect then jumped into a car that sped off, with police looking for both the shooter and the getaway driver.

No suspects have been identified, while the victim's identity will be released at a later stage by the Hennepin County Medical Examiner's Office.

A witness told the Star Tribune they saw the shooting from their apartment that overlooks the crime scene and described the shooter as 5'11", of medium build and wearing a black hoodie with gray sleeves.

Anyone with information should call CrimeStoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
