A man was found dead in south Minneapolis after gunshot notification technology alerted police.

When officers arrived, they found the victim lying dead on the boulevard.

Police spoke with several people at the scene. At this point, nobody has been arrested and police are searching for the suspect.

The medical examiner will identify the victim and cause of death.

In the week prior (March 24-30), the Shot Spotter technology was activated 19 times. None resulted in a victim being discovered, however.

The technology has been in place for about eight years now.

Anyone with any information about this case is asked to send a text to 847 411 (tip 411), enter MPD and the tip; or call the tipline at 612-692-TIPS (8477). All texts are anonymous.
