Minneapolis police investigating city's 53rd homicide of the year, fourth this week
August 28, 2020
A man shot on Minneapolis' South Side early Thursday died at a hospital a few hours later as police searched for his killer, according to officials.
The shooting occurred under unknown circumstances in the 3500 block of Chicago Avenue, in the Central neighborhood. The location is several blocks north of where George Floyd was killed three months ago, but officials don't believe that Thursday's homicide had anything to do with the memorial site.
The victim's identity hasn't been released, but he is thought to be in his late 20s.
