Authorities have identified the woman who was found shot and mortally wounded Saturday afternoon in south Minneapolis as 21-year-old Ayan Abdi Abdulahi.
Abdulahi, of Bloomington, died of a single gunshot wound to the head, the Hennepin County medical examiner’s office said in a news release Sunday night. She was found sometime after 2 p.m. by officers responding to a shots fired call at a duplex on the 2400 block of Portland Avenue.
Neighbors said a resident came upon the body after he awoke from a nap and called police. Abdulahi was pronounced dead at the scene.
The killing was the city’s seventh homicide of the year. No arrest has been made.
Police have not offered a motive for the slaying, but neighbors and a person familiar with the investigation said it stemmed from a domestic dispute.
