A man died after a shooting and subsequent car crash in north Minneapolis on Thursday night, marking the city’s 46th homicide of the year.
The incident occurred near N. Russell and 16th avenues in the Willard-Hay neighborhood, just south of Willard Park.
ShotSpotter and 911 callers reported multiple shots fired in the 1800 block of N. Russell Avenue about 6:30 p.m., Minneapolis police spokesman Garrett Parten said. A man was shot before he fled south in a white SUV and crashed.
Police officers administered CPR to the victim but were unable to revive him.
He was pronounced dead at North Memorial Health Hospital in Robbinsdale.
According to scanner audio, the shooting occurred as part of a rolling gun battle.
Police have taken suspects into custody, Parten said.
The 46 Minneapolis homicides this year do not include two fatal officer-involved shootings.
