Steven E. Meyer identified as north Minneapolis homicide victim
A 36-year-old Eden Prairie Man was fatally shot this this weekend in north Minneapolis, marking the city's 31st homicide of 2011.
Steven E. Meyer was shot in the abdomen Saturday afternoon and died hours later at North Memorial Medical Center in Robbinsdale. Police are calling it a homicide, but no suspects are currently in custody.
The 911 call came in around 3:40 p.m. Saturday.
When police arrived, Meyer's car was crashed at the corner of Girard and 43rd avenues.
Police are still trying to determine if he was shot while driving, or shot outside the car and then attempted to drive away, says Sgt. Steve McCarty, spokesman for Minneapolis police.
They do know Meyer "was inside the vehicle when it crashed," says McCarty.
Police are asking for anyone with knowledge of the slaying to call the TIPS phone line, at 612-692-8477.
