MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Minneapolis Police are investigating a shooting that left one man dead and a juvenile wounded.

Police were notified by the Shot Spotter system that gunshots were heard in the area of the 2400 block of Ogema Place. That was about 12:20 Sunday morning.

When police got there, they found two people with apparent gunshot wounds.

The boy was transported to Hennepin County Medical Center by ambulance with non-life threatening wounds. The man was pronounced dead at the scene.

“At this point we are still trying to ascertain what a possible motive behind this shooting could be,” MPD’s John Elder said.

Police were talking to people in the area to try to determine what happened.

The president of the Little Earth Residents Association said the slain man was not a resident, but a visitor to the community.

A vigil for the victim will be held at 7 p.m. Sunday at 2501 Cedar Avenue.
