A Minneapolis man who was shot in the head in the early morning hours on Easter Sunday has died, according to police.

The victim was a 45-year-old man who was walking down 14th Avenue South when he was shot in the head. The bullet came from a vehicle that was pulling out of an alleyway, according to security camera footage of the incident.

The victim was unresponsive as paramedics transported him to Hennepin Healthcare, Crime Watch Minneapolis reported. He died at the hospital on Wednesday.

The victim’s identity has not yet been released and no arrests have been made.

Police are calling this the city’s 21st homicide of the year.

A resident who did not want to be identified told Alpha News that drug deals take place on the street at all hours of the day and has asked police to put up a camera in the area.

“It’s 24/7 drugs and gun crime. There are toddlers who live here,” the resident said.
