Police are investigating a shooting that killed one and injured another Saturday afternoon on the east side of St. Paul.

St. Paul Police Department spokesman Sgt. Mike Ernster said officers responded to a report of shots fired around 12:15 p.m. on the 1400 block of Minnehaha Avenue East.

When officers arrived on scene, they found evidence of a shooting and were told the victims left the scene in a van.

Ernster said the van was found about 2 miles west, near Bradley Street and Bush Avenue. Two male victims with gunshot wounds were inside the vehicle. 

Paramedics pronounced one of the victims dead at the scene. The other was taken to Regions Hospital with a non-life-threatening gunshot wound to the arm, Ernster said.

Police are working with the Ramsey County Medical Examiner to determine the cause of death and identity of the deceased.

Investigators are still processing the scene to determine the circumstances of the shooting. No one is in custody at this time.

Anyone with information is asked to call the St. Paul Police Department Homicide Unit at 651-266-5650.
