Minneapolis police say a woman is dead after what they are calling a “possible pedestrian hit-and-run” in a parking lot.

Officers responded to a call about a woman down around 8:15 p.m. Sunday on the 800 block of Hennepin Avenue East.

The woman, who was in her 50s, had life-threatening injuries when police found her. Despite first responders’ efforts, she died at the scene.
