Ali and another man who was shot showed up in a private vehicle at HCMC after a group of people approached the two and started shooting, police said. Ali died moments later, the medical examiner said. The other man's condition was not immediately known.

On Saturday, Vincent Duntayvion Boone Sr., 33, of Minneapolis, was shot in the head near the intersection of N. 22nd Avenue and N. 6th Street and died later that morning at North Memorial Health Hospital, the medical examiner said.
