Minneapolis Police are investigating after they found a man in the backseat of a black SUV with a fatal gunshot wound to his head.

Police responded to a shots fired call around 4 p.m. Sunday on the 3400 block of Snelling Avenue South in Minneapolis and found the man.

Police say the man was shot by someone in another car that was passing by. The suspect had left the scene before officers arrived. Police say they have some leads in this case, but they do not have a suspect.

A neighbor reported hearing about seven shots fired. 

The victim was identified as 35-year-old Adrian Carr of St. Louis Park. His death has been ruled a homicide.

At this point, it's unclear what led to the shooting, and additional details have not been released.

Anyone with any information about this case is asked to send a text to 847 411, enter MPD and the tip or call the tip line at 612-692-TIPS (8477).
