The Minneapolis Police Department is investigating a man who died at the hospital early Saturday morning after a shooting in Minneapolis. 

According to police, at 2:59 a.m., officers responded after multiple 911 calls saying a shooting happened at Sixth Street North and Hennepin Avenue. 

Once officers arrived at the scene, they located a man believed to be in his 20s suffering from a gunshot wound. The victim didn't have a pulse or respiration, so officers started CPR and performed wound management, according to police. 

The paramedics arrived and transported the victim, who was in grave condition, to Hennepin County Medical Center. The victim later died at the hospital. 

Police were able to take the suspect into custody. Troy Lierre Fowler, 30, was booked into the Hennepin County Adult Detention Center on hold for murder.

Police said a firearm was recovered at the scene. 

The preliminary investigation reveals that the victim and another person got into a dispute which erupted into gunfire. The victim was then shot. 

The Medical Examiner’s Office will release the identity of the deceased, along with the nature and cause of death, in the coming days.

This is the 48th homicide in 2021 for Minneapolis.
