The Hennepin County Medical Examiner released the identity of a 60-year-old man who was shot to death in a north Minneapolis apartment complex Nov. 24.

Donald Edmondson died of a gunshot wound to the chest — a homicide, according to the Medical Examiner's report. The time of death was just before 3 p.m.

Minneapolis police say they responded to a report of a shooting at the Gateway Lofts, an apartment building in the 2600 block of W. Broadway. The officers found Edmondson with a gunshot wound and attempted to save his life, but he died at the scene.

"Preliminary reports indicate that an altercation escalated to violence," stated a news release from the Police Department. "It is not believed the public is in danger."

Edmondson's death marks the city's 61st homicide of the year, according to data tracked by the Star Tribune, down from 78 at the same time in 2022.
