Mohamed Omar Aden ID'd as NE Minneapolis shooting victim
Aden was found in a car near the corner of Lowry Avenue and Washington Street NE.

The Hennepin County Medical Examiner has identified Mohamed Omar Aden as the man who died of gunshot wounds outside a party in northeast Minneapolis this weekend.

Around 4:30 a.m., police responded to a residence on the 2400 block of Washington Street NE and found Aden in a car outside the party. He had been shot multiple times, and died on scene.

No suspect is in custody at this point, police say.

The party was still happening when police arrived, but investigators are still trying to determine if there's a connection between the party and the shooting, says police spokesman Sgt. William Palmer. Police don't believe the shooting was random.

According to KSTP, about 100 people were in the basement of the party, but the music was blaring too loud for anyone to hear the gunshots. A woman was also found in the car with Aden, apparently unharmed.

Palmer asks anyone with information about the case to contact 612-692-TIPS.
