A man believed to be in his late teens was fatally shot in north Minneapolis early Tuesday, according to police.
Minneapolis police responded to a ShotSpotter report inside a home on the 5100 block of Dupont Avenue North at 2:16 a.m., an MPD news release says. And while in route, police received 911 calls of the sound of gunshots in the area.
Police found an "adult male, believed to be in his late teens," with a gunshot wound. But despite lifesaving efforts, paramedics pronounced him dead.
The medical examiner will identify the victim in the coming days.
Multiple people were inside the home when police arrived so they were taken to the police station to be interviewed. There is no one in custody.
