The name of a man who died this week after being shot Easter morning in Minneapolis has been released.
According to the Hennepin County Medical Examiner’s Office, 45-year-old Vincent Lewis of Minneapolis died from a gunshot wound to his head Wednesday morning.
Lewis was shot on the 2900 block of 14th Avenue S. Sunday morning.
Police say they were called to the area around 12:30 a.m. on a report of a shooting.
When they arrived, they found Lewis in the street. He was taken to a hospital for what police said at the time were “potentially life-threatening injuries.”
Their early investigation shows at least one shot was fired from inside a car that had left the scene before officers arrived.
