Police: Man killed in shootout from vehicles on West Lake Street in Minneapolis

The shooting happened just before 2 a.m. Sunday.

A man believed to be in his 20s was fatally shot in Minneapolis early Sunday morning. 

A report of the "sound of shots fired" was made at 1:55 a.m., with responding officers arriving to the 100 block of West Lake Street to find a gunshot victim who had no pulse and wasn't breathing.
