A man, believed to be in his 40s, was fatally shot outside of a business in Minneapolis Wednesday night.
According to the Minneapolis Police Department, someone called 911 just before midnight to report a shooting on the 1700 block of East Lake Street.
When officers arrived, they found a man suffering from a gunshot wound lying outside a business. He had no pulse and wasn't breathing, and officers began CPR and "wound management" but he later died.
Officers' preliminary investigation indicates an altercation occurred between "two or more people" when one person pulled out a handgun and shot the man, then fled from the area, police said.
The medical examiner will release the victim's identity. According to the MPD's crime dashboard, there have been 15 homicides in the city so far this year. Last year at this time, there were 10.
