A man died in north Minneapolis Sunday night after being shot near North Commons Park, where hundreds were gathered to play kickball, according to Minneapolis police.
Police responded to a report of shots fired shortly before 7 p.m. near 16th and Morgan avenues N.
When officers arrived, they found a man not breathing and with no pulse, according to police spokesman Sgt. John Elder. After police attempted CPR, he was taken to North Memorial Medical Center, where he died a short time later, Elder said.
As many as 400 people were playing in a kickball tournament at North Commons Park when the shooting occurred. Many came running over a hill to see what was going on when police arrived, Elder said.
Two homicide teams were interviewing witnesses in the park Sunday night, Elder said. Police are continuing to investigate.
