An 18-year-old man was arrested Monday afternoon in the shooting death of a man last week near a north Minneapolis intersection where another man also was wounded by gunfire.
Mustafa Ali, 25, of Minneapolis, suffered multiple gunshot wounds early Friday evening near N. Aldrich and 23rd avenues, the Hennepin County Medical Examiner's Office said Sunday.
A Minneapolis man was booked into the Hennepin County jail on suspicion of murder and awaits charges. The Star Tribune generally does not identify suspects before they are charged.
Police were called to the area on a report of shots fired around 6:30 p.m. While en route, they were flagged down at N. Lyndale and 17th avenues by someone who was driving a wounded Ali toward a hospital.
First responders removed Ali from the car and found he had no pulse; he died at the scene.
Another man with a gunshot wound to the back was taken to HCMC and was initially reported to be in critical condition. As of Monday, Minneapolis police spokesman John Elder said, the man "is improving."
Investigators recovered a gun near where the gunfire erupted.
The crime lab examined a dark sedan parked on the street that was peppered with bullet holes inside and out.
Ali's death was the city's 35th homicide of the year, and it occurred about a block north of a corner that has been the source of resident complaints about criminal activity.
