MINNEAPOLIS — Minneapolis Police say a 30-year-old man shot near the intersection of 38th and Chicago has now died at Hennepin County Medical Center (HCMC) in Minneapolis, while a second victim is reportedly injured, but unaccounted for.

Police held a press conference around 9:30  p.m. Saturday, saying they responded to a shot spotter activation near the intersection of 38th Street East and Chicago Avenue around 5:45 p.m.

Upon arrival, police say they were unable to locate any shooting victims, but were previously told by 911 callers that those injured in the shooting had already been taken to seek medical attention.

One of those victims, a 30-year-old man, was taken to HCMC with a gunshot wound and pronounced dead, while the other's whereabouts were not disclosed by police. 

The Hennepin County Medical Examiner identified the victim as Imaz Patrick Wright of Minneapolis. 

Police say preliminary investigations indicate that the shooting suspect and at least one of the victims were seen arguing, before shots rang out and the suspect fled north in a "cream, or light colored, Suburban, believed to be a 2005-2016 body style...said to have sustained gunshot damage."

Police are asking the public for any information pertaining to the incident or the suspect, and are asked to call 800-222-TIPS.

This remains an active investigation, and no further information has been released by police at this time.

This is a developing story. More information will be added as it becomes available.
