Two men showed up about 2:40 a.m. at nearby HCMC from the 400 block of S. 15th Avenue, where they were shot, police said.
Police say a group of people approached the two and started shooting. The wounded men got in a vehicle and drove to the hospital, where one of them died, police added.
The surviving victim was in serious condition, according to police.
The men's identities haven't been released.
Monday night, a man in his 30s died at North Memorial Health Hospital. Police say he was one of three people shot early Saturday outside the 4th Street Saloon on West Broadway. The other two showed up at North Memorial in a private vehicle and were being treated for noncritical gunshot wounds.
Officers went to the bar's parking lot and recovered more than 100 bullet casings, police said.
No arrests have been made in these latest homicides, which bring the yearly total for the city to 48, according to Star Tribune records. Anyone with information about either shooting is urged to contact CrimeStoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
