MINNEAPOLIS — One man is dead and another is seriously injured following a stabbing Monday evening in downtown Minneapolis.

Minneapolis police say an altercation took place around 4:30 p.m. between three men near Nicollet Avenue and South 5th Street. When officers arrived, they found two men with stab wounds. Both victims were transported to a local hospital, where one man died and the other is in critical condition.

The Hennepin County Medical Examiner on Wednesday identified the man who died as Abdihakim Mohamed Areis, 32, of Eden Prairie.

Authorities say the suspect, an adult male, fled the scene, and officers haven't been able to locate him.

The incident comes after two separate shootings occurred on the city's north side Monday afternoon where at least eight people were shot. Police have not said if any of these incidents are related.
