Eugene V. Fleming, 26, of Minneapolis, was shot in the 2400 block of N. Emerson Avenue, the Hennepin County Medical Examiner’s Office said Wednesday.
Police have announced no arrests in connection with Fleming’s death, one of 56 homicides so far this year in the city. That’s eight more than all of last year and one shy of the 20-year high of 57, recorded in 2006.
