MANKATO, Minn. (AP) — Mankato police have released the name of a Nebraska man shot to death outside an entertainment center over the weekend.

Police identify the victim was 22-year-old Poth Accouth of Bellevue, Neb. The Ramsey County medical examiner’s office says he died from a gunshot wound to the neck.

Accouth was shot during a disturbance outside the Kato Ballroom early Sunday following an event for a Sudanese student group from Minnesota State University. Police say Accouth was in Mankato to participate in a weekend basketball tournament held at the school.

Police have not been able to identify the shooter. Because of the large number of people on the scene, investigators are confident several people witnessed the shooting and are asking them to help identify the shooter.
