A man was shot to death and another was seriously wounded in an attempted robbery Friday afternoon in Minneapolis, police said.
Marlo Randy Phillips, 27, of Minneapolis was killed in the alley of a small apartment building in the 2400 block of Golden Valley Road, according to the Hennepin County Medical Examiner's office.
Minneapolis police said Phillips was shot after he and a second man approached a Mercedes sedan with the driver and his 2-year-old child inside. The sedan fled.
Officers found Phillips wounded and lying in the alley about 3:40 p.m.. Police and paramedics provided medical aid, but he died at the scene.
The Mercedes driver, meanwhile, arrived at North Memorial Health Hospital in Robbinsdale with potentially life-threatening injuries. His car had been damaged by gunfire, but his child was not hurt. Police were investigating whether shots were fired from inside the car.
The other man at the shooting scene — identified as a 21-year-old — was arrested on probable cause and booked into Hennepin County jail.
"I am grateful for the outstanding police work of our responding Minneapolis police officers," Police Chief Brian O'Hara said in a statement. "They took quick action and attempted to save a life while also making an arrest of a gunman and recovering handguns.
