The Minneapolis Police Department said in a news release a 911 call was made around 10:45 p.m. reporting a shooting on the 400 block of Cedar Avenue South.

When officers arrived, they found an adult male who had been shot. Officers provided medical attention, police said, and the victim was taken to Hennepin County Medical Center.

He died there a short time later.

Police said on Facebook they do not believe the shooting was random. Nobody is in custody as of Monday morning.

The Cedar Cultural Center had a show Sunday night, headlined by Calamity and the Owl. It started at 7:30 p.m, and wrapped up around the time the shooting happened.

Raquel Sidie-Wagne, Calamity and the Owl's percussionist, told BringMeTheNews via email the shooting happened 30-45 minutes after the show ended, right otuside the theatre.

On Facebook, the band wrote no one at or involved with the show was injured, and thanked people for helping – bystanders who ushered people to safety, and a friend of the band that attempted CPR on the victim.
