1 dead in St. Paul shooting, police investigating

The St. Paul Police Department is investigating a homicide after a woman was found with a gunshot wound in the head early Saturday morning.

According to police, at 1 a.m., officers were dispatched to the 100 block of Larpenteur Avenue West on a report of a large fight in the parking lot of a business. 

While officers were on the way, they received multiple 911 calls reporting shots were fired at the same location. 

Once arrived on the scene, the officers found vehicles leaving the scene, but no one injured, said police. 

A short time later, Ramsey County's Sheriff's deputies were aware of the call and witnessed a car traveling at a high rate on Rice Street at Owasso Boulevard. Deputies believed that the vehicle may have been involved in the incident on Larpenteur and stopped it. 

According to the report, inside the vehicle, they found a female passenger suffering from an apparent gunshot wound to the head. Deputies called for Allina Paramedics, but once they had arrived, they pronounced the female dead at the scene. 

No arrests have been made at this time. Anyone with information about this incident is asked to call 651-266-5650.
