Family member fatally shoots man inside Minneapolis home, police say

The Minneapolis Police Department is investigating its 29th homicide of the year after a family member allegedly fatally shot a man late Thursday night.

Around 11:56 p.m., police responded to a man "screaming for help" on the 2000 block of James Avenue North. When they arrived, officers say they found an unconscious man who had been shot. Despite life-saving efforts, the man died at the scene.

Based on preliminary information in the investigation, police say a 40-year-old male family member shot the man inside a home. Officers detained that family member at the scene, and he has been booked into Hennepin County Jail on probable cause of murder.

The Hennepin County Medical Examiner's Office will release the man's name and cause of death after an autopsy is conducted.
