A man was found shot to death early Sunday in a vehicle that came to rest against a building in south Minneapolis, the city’s second homicide in less than seven hours.
Officers arrived about 2:10 a.m. at the intersection of E. Lake Street and S. Chicago Avenue and saw the vehicle, which had little damage, according to police.
Emergency responders took the man inside the vehicle to HCMC, where he was pronounced dead, police said.
The victim’s identity has not been released, and authorities haven’t reported further details.
No arrests have been made in the city’s 45th homicide this year.
In the earlier homicide, officers were called about 7:45 p.m. Saturday to the area of Van White Memorial Boulevard and N. 4th Avenue, just west of downtown, where they found a male in his late teens who had been stabbed, said police spokesman John Elder.
Emergency responders took the victim to HCMC, where he was pronounced dead.
A preliminary investigation found there was “a physical altercation taking place between two acquaintances that ... turned into a stabbing,” Elder told reporters at the scene. “This is a very focused attack from one person to another.”
No arrests have been announced, Elder said, but added, “We are making strong headway in this investigation.”
