At the scene, officers found the victim behind the building with a group of neighbors trying to help the man. Once on scene, officers took over efforts to revive the victim until an ambulance arrived.

The man was rushed to Hennepin County Medical Center where he was ultimately pronounced dead.

The investigation into the shooting is ongoing.
