Aden was found in a car near the corner of Lowry Avenue and Washington Street NE.
The Hennepin County Medical Examiner has identified Mohamed Omar Aden as the man who died of gunshot wounds outside a party in northeast Minneapolis this weekend.

Around 4:30 a.m., police responded to a residence on the 2400 block of Washington Street NE and found Aden in a car outside the party. He had been shot multiple times, and died on scene.

No suspect is in custody at this point, police say.

The party was still happening when police arrived, but investigators are still trying to determine if there's a connection between the party and the shooting, says police spokesman Sgt. William Palmer. Police don't believe the shooting was random.

According to KSTP, about 100 people were in the basement of the party, but the music was blaring too loud for anyone to hear the gunshots. A woman was also found in the car with Aden, apparently unharmed.

Palmer asks anyone with information about the case to contact 612-692-TIPS.

Northeast used to be nice as recently as the early 2000's. Then apartment owners started accepting section 8 vouchers and everything went to hell. Case in point: Check out the type of people who hang out on the corner of 26th and Central right in front of that convenient store all hours of the day and night. Turns out there is welfare housing right behind it.

"A woman was also found in the car with Aden, apparently unharmed"
Suspect, witness? Why is this such a under emphasized detail in the post. Seems like the basement party is a secondary fact to this bit.

Well NE Minneapolis is an Arts District according to the little signs the city wasted taxpayers money on. So I would guess this is just performance art by some aspiring young artist who is supported by welfare and used the Lowry Ave Bridge to get home after his latest exhibition.

@kennyX Looking at your post history makes me wonder if you're mad at the world because you look like a lesbian.

@YouAreSad The profile image is of Rachel Maddow taken from a photo of her with her girlfriend. No internet shithead antagonist of kenny's calibre ("pathetic" on the troll equivalent scale) has the brass ones to post an actual photo...come on.

@YouAreSad Well, when the facts are revealed about this shooting, you know I will be correct.

@kennyX @DavidFoureyes  Hush, adults are speaking. Go in the corner, play with your doll and try to be quiet. And here's your cookie.

@DavidFoureyes Why not just be honest? Do you honestly think that this was a white-on-black crime? The chances of that are basically zero. Wait until the facts come out. I will bet you a welfare check that I will be right and you will be wrong.

@kennyX @DavidFoureyes Hey racist...just stay away from my neighborhood will you?  Next thing you know, it might be you who is the victim of "performance art".

@DavidFoureyes Name calling. Classy. I'm surprised that you didn't call me a racist too.

@kennyX Since I'm certain you have nothing to cite per your usual ad hominem, I'll give you a leg up next time you open your shithead mouth: NE is a dump. What else you got, smartass?

@DavidFoureyes Says the delusional Progressive white guilt apologist who thinks that Northeast Minneapolis is a nice part of town.
