Woman arrested in St. Paul homicide at senior living apartment

St. Paul police say they have made an arrest after a man was found shot to death Friday at a senior living apartment in the Dayton’s Bluff neighborhood.

On Sunday, officers arrested a 49-year-old St. Paul woman on the 1500 block of Chicago Avenue South in Minneapolis in connection with the fatal shooting.

She was booked into the Ramsey County Jail and has yet to be formally charged.

The victim, a man in his late 50s, was found dead Friday evening while officers were conducting a welfare check at his apartment on the 700 block of East Seventh Street, police said.

Investigators thought at first the man’s gunshot wound was self-inflicted. However, police said forensic analysis made it “clear that someone had shot the man.”

Police have yet to release the victim’s identity.
