The crash happened around 8:31 p.m. in the 2500 block of 17th Avenue South. A van carrying Hamza Mohoumed Abdillahi parked next to a curb facing northbound 17th Ave. S. to drop the boy off, but when he got out and started walking across the street, a Chrysler sedan heading north hit him.

Citizens attempted to revive him until medical responders arrived.

The boy was taken to Hennepin County Medical Center, where he later died.

The crash is still under investigation, and the driver is cooperating with police.
