Homicide on Raum

Just before midnight MPD responded to a 911 call regarding shots fired in the 1200 block of Raum. A male victim was found on the scene with wounds from multiple gunshots. MPD reported that the victim was transported to Med Starr hospital but succumbed to his injuries.

Our condolences to the family.
