One person was fatally shot at a festival in St. Paul Sunday afternoon.

According to the St. Paul Police Department, the shooting occurred shortly after 4:30 p.m. at the Hmong Freedom Festival in Como Regional Park.


"Any time someone is killed by someone else in the city of St. Paul it's terrible," the department's Steve Linders said, "but to think that somebody would shoot a gun at a festival where so many people are, I can't even describe it."

A man was shot twice and taken to Regions Hospital in critical condition. Police later said he died.

Police originally said two suspects were in custody, but later said no arrests have been made. Police have interviewed several witnesses.

The victim has not been identified. According to police, this is the seventh homicide in St. Paul this year.
