Police say officers tried life-saving measures, but the man died at the scene of the Super 8 parking lot. Cmdr. Tim Gannon tells the Star Tribune (http://bit.ly/1d7mTJZ) no arrests have been made in the shooting.

Gannon says it appears the man's wounds were suffered within a block or so from the hotel and that he had come from the direction of a Denny's restaurant. A nearby van was towed by police. Gannon says he's not sure whether the van is connected to the victim or a suspect.
