On Thursday, police were conducting surveillance and following the teen suspect. Two marked police cars attempted to stop the teen at the intersection of Seventh Street and Lyndale Avenue North, however, the suspect fled and drove through the North Loop neighborhood. 

During the pursuit, the teen threw items from the vehicle, including a gun. Ballistics tested showed the gun the teen threw from the car was used in the shooting. 

Police were eventually able to stop the teen's vehicle in Plymouth.

The 17-year-old victim was identified as Andre Conley of Minneapolis.
