Minneapolis police had previously said officers were called to the 500 block of Knox Avenue North shortly before 10 p.m. Monday after a ShotSpotter activation. There, they found Abukar in the driver’s seat of a vehicle, suffering from gunshot wounds.

At the time, police said bystanders told them a male ran from the area right after the shooting and a vehicle also left the scene. However, police didn’t provide any suspect description and haven’t announced any arrests.
