MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Minneapolis police investigating a car crash discovered the driver had been shot.

Authorities say the car crashed into a building in northeast Minneapolis Tuesday about 5 p.m. Officers arriving at the scene found the man had gunshot wounds that caused his death at Hennepin County Medical Center.

The victim is identified by his father as 39-year-old Steven Markey. Jerry Markey tells the Star Tribune police officers knocked on his door in Maple Grove Tuesday night to break the news of his son’s death.

Minneapolis police say the gunfire happened about a block away from where the car crashed. No suspects are in custody.
