Police seek suspects in shooting death of teen in Minneapolis


A 17-year-old boy was shot early Sunday morning in Minneapolis and died of his wounds at Hennepin County Medical Center early Sunday afternoon, KSTP reports.

Minneapolis police say they were called to the 1600 block of Newton Avenue North at about 2 a.m. Sunday on a report of a shooting. When officers arrived, police say they found the teen with an apparent gunshot wound to his stomach, lying in a grassy boulevard in front of a home.

The teen was taken to Hennepin County Medical Center where he died Sunday afternoon, according to the Star Tribune. The victim's name has not been released.

Police say it's unclear if the teen was shot where police discovered him or if the shooting happened at a different location, and they added that witnesses on the scene were not cooperative with officers, according to KSTP.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Minneapolis Police Department.
