'It is disturbing'; Minneapolis shooting leaves 1 dead

"Anytime we lose a young person on a holiday weekend, it is disturbing," O'Hara said during a press conference.

MINNEAPOLIS — Police say a shooting left a teenager dead in a north Minneapolis alley on Monday afternoon.

Minneapolis police said officers received 911 calls reporting shots fired around 5:30 p.m. on the 3700 block of Bryant Avenue North. A statement from MPD said when they arrived at the scene, officers found a "male presumed to be a juvenile" suffering from a life-threatening gunshot wound. 

The statement went on to say the victim was transported to North Memorial Hospital, where he was later pronounced dead.

On Tuesday, the Hennepin County Medical Examiner identified the victim as 14-year-old Alan Davis, of Minneapolis. His death was ruled a homicide by multiple gunshot wounds.

"Anytime we lose a young person on a holiday weekend, it is disturbing," Minneapolis Police Chief Brian O'Hara said during a press conference Monday afternoon.

O'Hara said so far, no arrests have been made, but the case remains open and under investigation.
