According to police, officers responded just before 4:50 p.m. to a report of a crash at 14th and Central avenues. A red Toyota Camry, with one person inside, was reported to have crashed into a building.

Officers found the banged-up vehicle with a man - now identified as Markey - behind the wheel bleeding and barely alive. Police said the driver had suffered multiple gunshot wounds. Officers, with the help of bystanders, began emergency first aid, which included CPR.

Paramedics arrived on scene and Markey was transported to Hennepin Healthcare. Authorities later confirmed he had died.

Authorities canvassed the crash scene, as well as an area a block away, where they located evidence of a shooting. Investigators said that's also where at least one suspect took off.

On Thursday, police said two men were in custody in connection with the homicide investigation. However, police said they couldn't release any information about the suspects due to the ongoing investigation.

More information is expected to be released at a later time.
