A shooting on Saturday night in Minneapolis has left one person killed.
The incident unfolded at the same site where black U.S. citizen George Floyd died last May while being apprehended by white police officers, Minneapolis Police Department spokesman John Elder said.
“The victim and the suspect had a verbal disagreement, and the suspect shot the victim,” Elder said, as quoted by CNN.
The sound of shooting was caught on the ShotSpotter sound detection system, prompting the police to respond, according to the report.
When officers arrived at the scene, the victim had already been hospitalised and later pronounced dead, while the perpetrator had fled on his car, a light-colored Suburban with gunshot damage, according to the spokesman.
The police are now after the perpetrator, who has still not been identified. (Sputnik/NAN)
