Officers are still looking for the person who shot a teen found Tuesday evening on the western edge of downtown Minneapolis.
Police were called to the area of 2nd and Lyndale avenues N. about 7:10 p.m. where they found the 16-year-old boy near the Interstate 94 overpass not far from the International Market Square. Officers rendered aid until paramedics arrived and transported the victim to Hennepin County Medical Center, said police spokeswoman Darcy Horn.
The victim suffered noncritical injuries, she said.
Horn said the victim had been riding in a car, but she was uncertain if he was shot while in a vehicle or how he ended up where he was found. An early report indicated that the victim was homeless, but “there is no reason to believe he was homeless,” Horn said.
No arrests had been made as of Wednesday morning. Police were looking for the gunman and hoping to obtain surveillance video from nearby establishments that might help identify a suspect or vehicle involved.
