A St. Paul woman died Sunday after police found her unresponsive in a vehicle late Saturday night.

The 22-year-old woman was found in the car near the intersection of Robert and George Streets as officers were on routine patrol, according to police. Officials confirmed Monday morning that she had a gunshot wound.

St. Paul Fire paramedics were called and then took the woman to Regions Hospital, where she died Sunday.

Investigators are speaking to witnesses and following leads as they look into the woman’s death, which police call "suspicious."

The woman’s identity has not been released. A cause of death will be determined by the Ramsey County Medical Examiner’s Office.
