One of the eight victims of a surge of Fourth of July gun violence in Minneapolis has died.

The man, who has yet to be identified, was one of two males found with gunshot wounds early Sunday morning in the area of North 4th Street and Hennepin Avenue, where police managed to see a crowd flee the scene before they could question anyone.

Authorities are now asking anyone who might've been in that crowd and witnessed something to come forward, according to a press release.

The victim died of his injuries on Tuesday; the condition of the other man who was found with him is not known, but he was reported to have suffered non-life-threatening wounds after the pair were taken to Hennepin County Medical Center.

The identity of the deceased and the exact cause of his death will be released by the Medical Examiner, police say.

A violent weekend

The shooting was one of three separate incidents in Minneapolis over the holiday weekend.

Just blocks away from the first shooting, officers heard gunfire and discovered a male and female with gun wounds, none of them life-threatening.

A third person who was believed shot in the same incident later arrived at North Memorial Medical Center, also with wounds that were apparently not fatal.

It was unclear if these two shootings were related, but police said they didn't them to be random.

Meanwhile, the same hospital received three people who'd sustained gunshot wounds in yet another separate incident which also did not appear to be random.

According to MPR, as of Monday, police had made no arrests in any of the attacks, but their investigation is ongoing.
