Minneapolis police arrest man in connection with ‘suspicious death’ at apartment

Police say they’ve made an arrest after a man was found dead under suspicious circumstances Sunday at an apartment in Minneapolis.

According to the Minneapolis Police Department, firefighters responded to a fire alarm just after 9 a.m. near 17th Street East and Third Avenue South. Crews did not encounter a fire, but there was a man believed to be in his 60s deceased from “injuries not related to any fire.”

Police later arrived on scene and learned that another man had been in the apartment. Officers arrested a 55-year-old suspect and booked him into the Hennepin County Jail on suspicion of murder.

This is the city’s 41st homicide investigation this year, police said.

The victim’s name and cause and manner of death will be released following an autopsy.
