A 21-year-old was shot and left to die in Minneapolis on Friday.
Christopher Roy de Ronde was found dead around noon at the intersection of 30th and Colfax Avenues N., after sustaining a bullet wound in the chest.
This is the first homicide in 5 weeks and the 34th homicide in Minneapolis this year, the Associated Press reported.
An award was given to the neighborhood a day before the shooting for reducing crime by 70 percent, Minneapolis police Inspector Mike Martin told the AP.
Onlookers were drawn to the scene as sirens blared and observed as the police collected the victim's body, the Star Tribune reported.
According to the Star Tribune, one man said as he watched a detective inspecting the body, "Kid hasn't even lived yet and he's already dead."
