One of the victims of a shooting in Minneapolis on Monday was a 15-year-old boy.
Jaden M. Blackmon was identified Wednesday by the Hennepin County Medical Examiner’s Office, stating the 15-year-old died of a gunshot wound in the chest just after 2 a.m. on April 12.
Blackmon was in a vehicle with Ahmed M. Badal, 35, from Minneapolis, who was also fatally shot after a two-vehicle accident on South 14th Avenue on East 28th Street in South Minneapolis.
Blackmon died at the scene of the accident while the coroner reports that Badal died north of East 29th Street near the crash site.
Minneapolis police responded to the crash in the Phillips neighborhood of southern Minneapolis just after 2 a.m. Monday, and local officials found one vehicle empty while Blackmon was found dead from a gunshot wound in the other vehicle.
Badal was found in the middle of the road north of the crash site with a gunshot wound, police said. First responders tried to save his life, but he died on the scene.
