(WCCO) Minneapolis A man shot in the head in the Uptown area of Minneapolis on Saturday night died late Sunday night at Hennepin County Medical Center.
Michael Zebuhr, 25, was a Ph.D. student at Clemson University in South Carolina. He was enrolled in the bioengineering program. He dreamed of working at NASA someday.
He was from Buckhannon, W.Va. and was a 2005 graduate of Davis and Elkins College, a private Presbyterian School in Elkins, W.Va. Officials there said he received B.S. degrees there in chemistry and math. They said he was a student leader as well as a member of the school's ski team.
Friends and family said Zebuhr also loved mountain biking, math and science.
Zebuhr was shot in the head in the 3100 block of Girard Avenue South around 10 p.m. Saturday.
Police said Zebuhr was walking to a parked car with family members, when robbers approached them and demanded his mother's purse. She gave it to the gunmen without any resistance. One of the men then shot Zebuhr.
Lt. Lee Edwards of the Minneapolis Police Department said, "Within a half hour of the incident, we had already had six homicide investigators or six officers with homicide experience already working this thing."
Police tried to reassure the community on Tuesday the crime would not go unpunished.
Minneapolis Police Chief, William McManus said, "I want to assure everyone that this crime is an aberration, this is not the norm for around here."
Police are hoping for a break in the case. Several security cameras were pointed in the direction where the shooting happened and police are now reviewing those tapes.
"This is just an unspeakable event, an unspeakable tragedy that unfortunately occurred right in front of the young man's mother and sister," McManus said.
Other community leaders shared their disgust and vowed to find Zebuhr's murderer.
Minneapolis City Council Member Ralph Remington said, "This is an unspeakable brutality. These people will be caught and we will be on top of it."
Zebuhr's organs were donated to patients in need.
