A man was shot during the evening of May 6 in Brooklyn Center.

According to the Brooklyn Center Police Department, the department was dispatched to an address on the 5700 block of Xerxes Avenue on a report of a man who had been shot.

Responding officers found an adult male with a gunshot wound. Officers and paramedics offered medical aid to the victim, who was then transported to an area hospital by ambulance. According to the police department, the victim sustained serious injuries.

While no arrests have yet been made in the investigation, “There was a significant police presence in the area while numerous officers and a K-9 searched for suspects and evidence,” Police Commander Garett Flesland wrote in a press release. “Although there have not been any arrests made yet, this investigation remains extremely active with officers/detectives working to locate and speak with additional witnesses as well as searching for additional evidence. Based on evidence recovered so far, we do not believe this to be a random incident.”
