MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — One of the several people shot in downtown Minneapolis over the holiday weekend has died of his injuries.
According to Minneapolis police, 16-year-old Sabrae Monte McAlester was one of two people shot at 4th Street and Hennepin Avenue early Sunday morning.
Officers who responded to the scene saw a crowd of people running from the area and found the two victims.
Both were taken to Hennepin County Medical Center. On Tuesday, police said McAlester died as a result of a gunshot wound to the head.
Because a number of people were on the scene, the police department is requesting witnesses come forward with any information they may have about the shooting by calling 1-800-222-TIPS and referencing case number 15-247616.
