The man who died after a shooting outside a Minneapolis gas station has been identified as 32-year-old Paris Tracie Love. 

According to the Hennepin County Medical Examiner, Love died due to multiple gunshot wounds and the manner of death is homicide. 

On Wednesday evening, a shooting happened just after 6 p.m. in the area of East Lake Street and 18th Avenue South, the Minneapolis Police Department reported.

Authorities received a 911 call reporting a person had been shot, later identified as Love and that another suspect left the scene in a vehicle.

Responding paramedics aided officers in providing aid, but Love was ultimately pronounced dead at the scene.

Officers said a preliminary investigation revealed Love was outside of the gas station when another person in a vehicle pulled up and got out, firing multiple rounds at the man. The other person then left the scene.

Police said investigators believe this was not a random act.

Anyone with information on the incident is asked to call CrimeStoppers at 1-800-222-8477, or submit information online, and reference case number 21-131602.
