MINNEAPOLIS — Minneapolis Police held a press conference Sunday afternoon after one person was killed and another injured in a shooting near the city's George Floyd Square.
Police say they responded to the intersection of 38th and Chicago on the city's south side, when they discovered two men in their 20s with "potentially life-threatening" gunshot wounds. Both men were taken to Hennepin Healthcare, where one has since died, and another is still hospitalized — the latter's current condition unknown.
Authorities believe a possible suspect fled the scene on foot after gunfire broke out near the intersection.
Authorities say potential evidence at the scene — possibly including a firearm —may have been removed before first responders could properly canvas the area, and are asking anyone with information pertaining to the shooting to please contact CrimeStoppers of Minnesota at 1-800-222-8477, or on their website.
Police say this is the city's 58th homicide of 2022. Further information on the deceased victim will be released by the Hennepin County Medical Examiner in the coming days.
