St. Paul Police is investigating the city's 29th fatal shooting of the year, the most in at least a decade.

Police say a man was found in a car with a gunshot wound at around 5 p.m. Sunday near the intersection of Rice and West Wayzata Streets. The man was pronounced dead at the scene. He has not been identified. 

Sgt. Mike Ernster says there are no arrests and the motive is not known.

"Everybody seems to have a camera these days so we're looking for any available cameras in the area that would have captured this incident," he said.

The shooting is less than a half a mile away from the site of tomorrow's public safety community meeting, the second of three such discussions started by the Mayor's office on how to address gun violence. More than 140 people have been shot in St. Paul this year. It's the fourth fatal shooting this month and second in a week's time.
