Gunfire in broad daylight Thursday left one person dead, marking the 44th death reported as a homicide in Minneapolis this year. 

The shooting happened around 1:05 p.m. on the 2600 block of Stevens Ave. S. in the Whittier neighborhood of south Minneapolis. At the scene was a man in his 30s who was suffering from gunshot wounds, according to Minneapolis police. 

"Officers attempted lifesaving medical aid until relieved by Fire and EMS. The injured male was transported by ambulance to Hennepin Healthcare. Despite all life-saving efforts, the male died at the hospital," MPD said in a release.
