A home security camera captured a 45-year-old man as he was shot in the head and collapsed to the ground just after midnight Sunday in Minneapolis.
The shooting took place on the 2900 block of 14th Avenue South off of Lake Street at 12:33 a.m. A video of the incident shows a black vehicle drive down an alleyway, fire a single shot at the victim, and then drive away. Several cars were parked along the street and turned their headlights on in unison as the suspect vehicle drove away.
