Police are investigating the deaths of two men who were found with gunshot wounds in the early hours of Monday.

A Minneapolis Police Department spokesman said Metro Transit police responded to a two-vehicle crash at East 28th Street and 14th Avenue South in the Phillips neighborhood just after 2 a.m.

When officers got to the scene, one of the cars was empty and in the other a man was "obviously deceased" from a gunshot wound.

Officers then found another man suffering from gunshot wounds in the middle of the road about a block away. Lifesaving measures were carried out but he died at the scene.

No arrests have been made, and the victims have not yet been identified.

Minneapolis PD has issued an appeal for anyone with information to call CrimeStoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477) or submit a tip at www.CrimeStoppersMN.org
