Authorities on Wednesday identified the 38-year-old man who was shot near the downtown Minneapolis bus station and died more than three weeks later.
Terrence A. Hall, of Detroit, was shot in the chest on Sept. 7 and died Sunday, according to the Hennepin County Medical Examiner’s Office.
Police have announced no arrests in connection with Hall’s death.
Officers arrived about 7:30 p.m. and located Hall in the street and suffering from multiple gunshot wounds, police said. Police and fire personnel tended to Hall before he was taken to HCMC.
A wounded Hall ran from the Greyhound station in the 900 block of Hawthorne Avenue and collapsed nearby in front of the Salvation Army’s homeless shelter, an official with the charity said.
“He was running toward the Harbor Lights center,” said Brian Molohon, executive director of development for the Salvation Army said. “He was running away from his attackers.”
Molohon said Hall had not been staying at the shelter or using the services it offers to those in need.
Molohon acknowledged that the part of downtown that includes the bus station and the shelter “is a rough area.”
As for how to improve public safety in those blocks, he said, “That’s the $64,000 question.
“I don’t know what the answer is. I don’t want to be so quick to say put more officers on the street. I’d need to jump in a little bit deeper” before endorsing any specific solution, he said.
