The investigation into the shooting is ongoing. No suspects have been arrested at this time.

Speaking at the crime scene, Minneapolis Police Chief Brian O'Hara expressed dismay about another act of violence in Minneapolis involving a teen.

"We have a serious issue with juveniles repeatedly involved in the system and repeatedly involved in more and more serious crime," said the chief. "Any death is tragic, but anytime we lose a young person on a holiday weekend, that is particularly disturbing for all of us."
