A man is dead after a shooting in Minneapolis on Friday night.
Officers from the Minneapolis Police Department (MPD) responded to the Franklin Avenue ramp to West River Parkway on the report of a shooting around 11:50 p.m.
A spokesperson for MPD said a man called 911 and said he had shot another man after being attacked. When officers arrived at the scene, they found a 34-year-old man with a life-threatening gunshot wound. The man later died at the hospital, MPD officials said.
A 24-year-old man at the scene was arrested and a handgun was recovered, according to MPD. The man was booked into Hennepin County Jail for probable cause weapons.
Investigators believe that the arrested man had driven the wrong way on a one-way road, which resulted in an altercation with the 34-year-old. During the altercation, the 24-year-old fired his gun, police said. He did not claim to be injured in the altercation.
MPD is investigating.
The Hennepin County Medical Examiner will identify the deceased and his exact cause of death.
