According to MPD spokesman John Elder, police responding to the scene found an injured man in a vehicle. He had apparently been shot on the street.

The victim was transported to HCMC for treatment.

"This is not believed to be random," Elder told us. "Through investigatory leads we have found that we believe this is not a public safety concern."

Nonetheless, the MPD is on the hunt for the shooter. Elder said they don't have a description of the suspect at this time, but anybody with information is asked to the MPD tip line at 612-692-847.
