Police: Man shot, killed in north Minneapolis; city’s 77th homicide

Authorities said a man was fatally shot in north Minneapolis’ Folwell neighborhood early Tuesday.

The shooting occurred at about 1:25 a.m. Minneapolis Police spokesman John Elder said when officers arrived, they found a vehicle that had struck several parked cars in the middle of the block. They also found a man inside the vehicle suffering from a gunshot wound.

The victim was not breathing and did not have a pulse when officers pulled him from the vehicle and began CPR. Elder said paramedics arrived and took over, but were unsuccessful in reviving the man, who was pronounced dead at the scene.

The man’s death pushed the city’s homicide total for the year to 77.
