No suspect has been identified by St. Paul PD at this stage, with the Ramsey County Medical Examiner set to identify the victim at a later time.

It's the second killing reported in St. Paul over the weekend, after a woman was arrested over the death of a man at a city apartment on Saturday.

It's the 26th homicide in the city reported this year, the highest number in the past decade, and a number that is prompting Mayor Melvin Carter to bring forward a supplemental budget spending proposal focusing on public safety.
