One man was shot to death and another wounded in a shooting outside a north Minneapolis bar Wednesday night that followed a robbery attempt that went awry, officials said.
The gunfire occurred about 9 p.m. next to the 4th Street Saloon in the 300 block of West Broadway, police said. No arrests have been announced.
Officers arrived, saw a wounded 29-year-old man and provided immediate aid, but he died at the scene, according to police.
In the meantime, police learned that another man showed up at the downtown hospital HCMC with what is being described as a noncritical wound.
Officers taped off the saloon parking lot and were interviewing people Wednesday night, said police Sgt. Garrett Parten.
The shooting "involved an apparent, interrupted armed robbery," police said in a statement late Thursday afternoon. No other details were released.
The names of both victims have yet to be released.
There have been 45 homicides in Minneapolis so far this year, according to a Star Tribune database. That compares with 67 in the city at this time in 2022.
