Minneapolis homicide detectives are investigating what police termed a “suspicious death” that occurred Monday afternoon in the Willard-Hay neighborhood.
Officers were summoned shortly after 2 p.m. to the 2300 block of Russell Avenue North, where they found a man slumped over inside a vehicle, said police spokesman John Elder. The man, whose identity wasn't immediately released, was pronounced dead at the scene.
Elder said the cause and manner of death would be determined by the Hennepin County medical examiner’s office, but a source with knowledge of the investigation said that police were treating the death as a homicide.
The death capped a bloody week in Minneapolis with three homicides and numerous non-fatal shootings.
