Minneapolis Teen Shot and Killed

A Rosevelt High School senior was shot and killed outside a south Minneapolis home Saturday night, the Star Tribune reported.

Police have identified the victim as Jesse Mickelson, 18, who was found near an alley behind the home. Authorities were called just before 7 p.m. in the 4100 block of 29th Avenue S. Mickelson was pronounced dead at the scene.

Police said there had been a social gathering at the residence that evening. A relative told KSTP-TV that Jesse Mickelson was shot as he approached a car that pulled up around the back of the house.

Police are looking for a 4-door white Dodge Intrepid that had been spotted in the alley just before the shooting. Police are not releasing any information about the suspects at this time.

This is the thirtieth homicide in Minneapolis this year.
