The teenager was rushed to a local hospital where he died, a police spokesman said StarTribune.

The youngster’s death this year was the 37th murder in Minneapolis, which has seen violent crime increase since the murder of Floyd on Memorial Day.

So far, 274 people have been shot in the city, which is already more than all of the admissions reported for 2019 and 56 percent higher than the average number of people shot at this time of year, the StarTribune reported.

Of the 37 reported murders, ten occurred alone in July. No one was arrested at the death of the teenager

Police are continuing to investigate the incident, which took place three blocks from where Floyd, a black father of five, was shot by white police officer Derek Chauvin, during an arrest near the intersection of East 38 Street and Chicago Avenue.

Chauvin has since been fired and charged with the murder of Floyd, who died after the ex-agent pressed his knee to the man’s neck for nearly 9 minutes, leading to his death.

Floyd’s murder was videotaped by a bystander who captured the murder, sparking Black Lives Matter protests across the country calling for an end to police brutality and systematic racism.

A sanctuary of flowers, votive candles and other memorials was built almost immediately on the site of Floyd’s murder and lasted for days when protests began across the country.

The site is near the store that called Floyd police to hand over a “fake” twenty dollar bill for a pack of cigarettes.

It was a Cup Foods employee on the corner of 38 Street and Chicago Avenue who made the fateful 911 call to which rookie Minneapolis officers J. Alexander Kueng and Thomas Lane responded shortly after 8 p.m. on May 25.

Another officer, Tou Thao, and Chauvin arrived less than ten minutes later.

After Floyd was murdered, shopkeeper Mahmoud Abumayyaleh teamed up with workers to cover the windows with photos of the murdered man and posters calling for “justice.”

Abumayyahleh knew Floyd and described him as a ‘big teddy bear’.

He added that if he had been in the store that day, the police would never have been called.
