Shooting, stabbing leave 2 dead in Minneapolis' 44th, 45th homicides of 2020

The separate incidents happened late Saturday evening and early Sunday morning.

Minneapolis Police Department is investigating the 44th and 45th homicides in the city this year after one man was fatally shot and another victim was stabbed to death. 

The first deadly incident happened just after 7:45 p.m. in the area of N 4th Ave. and Van White Memorial Blvd west of downtown Minneapolis, with officers arriving at the scene to find a young man in his late teens who had been stabbed multiple times. 

Officers immediately began CPR on the victim, who had no pulse and wasn't breathing. Paramedics transported him to Hennepin Healthcare where he was pronounced dead. 

Investigators believe the stabbing happened as a result of an altercation "between acquaintances" that "turned physical and one person stabbed the other." 

The second homicide of the night was reported at 2:09 a.m. Sunday in the area of Lake St. and Chicago Ave. in south Minneapolis. There, police found a man who'd been gravely wounded from a gunshot wound. 

The man was in a vehicle that was up against a building, police said. He was transported to Hennepin Healthcare and pronounced dead a short time later. 

Both homicides are under investigation. Anyone with information that could help in either case is urged to contact CrimeStoppers by calling 1-800-222-8477, or submit a tip online via CrimeStoppersMN.org
