A boy was killed and a man injured in a late-night shooting near Burrito Loco in Dinkytown on Monday night.
The victim was originally reported to be an adult male, but after establishing his identity, police determined he was under the age of 18, according to Minneapolis police spokesman John Elder. The man showed up at an area hospital suffering from a gunshot wound after the incident, which occurred about 11 p.m., according to an alert sent out by the University of Minnesota police.
Police say that three guns were recovered at the scene. It is the 17th homicide in Minneapolis this year.
