1 dead after shooting in Plymouth

Officials have not released many details on the fatal shooting that occurred just before 11:00 p.m. Saturday.

PLYMOUTH, Minn. — One person is dead after a shooting in Plymouth Saturday night that left a neighborhood shaken. 

Officials have not confirmed many details about what led to the fatal shooting, but do say officers from Plymouth were called to an address on the 5800 block of Oakview Lane North just before 11 p.m. 

When squads got to the scene they found a man who had been shot. Emergency responders gave him first aid, police said, but the victim died at the scene.

The name of the man who died has not been released as of Monday afternoon. 

Matthew Haglund lives across the street and was getting ready to end his evening when the violence and chaos started. 

"Yeah it was a hectic night for sure," Haglund said.

Alexa Beller lives across the street from the home as well and said she heard the gunshots. 

"And then we heard yelling and saw a number of kids, teenagers, streaming out of the house, getting in their cars and driving really erratically," Beller said. "We knew no one was living there but we heard it was on VRBO for rent."

KARE 11 found an active listing for the home on VRBO; however, by Sunday afternoon, the listing was taken down.

"It's been very quiet. I guess this is the first time anything like this has happened, that I've seen at that house," Haglund said. "Someone lost their life, so that's horrific to know that's happening at that moment, and just scary to know that happened 100 yards from where I was sitting on a Saturday night and that happened just across the street."

The city of Plymouth confirms that the house where the shooting happened was licensed as a rental property on Dec. 9, 2022 after passing an inspection the previous month. In the three months prior to the fatal shooting city officials had received no reports of issues involving the property or its renters.

The Hennepin County Sheriff's Office is assisting Plymouth Police in their investigation of the incident. Anyone with information about what happened or those responsible is asked to contact the Plymouth PD tip line at 763-509-5177.
