Authorities say a 17-year-old boy was shot dead in Minneapolis.
Minneapolis police said in a statement that the officers were in the area at around 2:25 am when they heard multiple shots. Officers eventually found that the teen had a gunshot wound and tried to take measures to save lives before paramedics could comfort them.
The boy died later in a local hospital.
Police say they believe the teen was involved in a confrontation that escalated into the shooting. Others who may have been involved fled the scene before the officers arrived.
The Minneapolis Police Crime Lab and homicide investigators are investigating the shooting.
