Around 2 a.m., police responded to the 2100 block of North 4th Street after a report of shots heard – the city's Shot Spotter also alerted the officers of the shooting, police said in a news release.

Upon arrival, they found an adult man suffering from apparent gun shot wounds. Officers performed CPR, but he was later pronounced dead at the hospital.

Homicide investigators canvassed the area and are following up on leads, but no one has been taken into custody.

The medical examiner will release the man's identity and cause of death.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Minneapolis Police Department's tip line at 612-692-8477.
