Boy, 16, arrested for murder after man dies in St. Paul alleyway

Police believe it's a domestic-related incident.

Police in St. Paul have arrested a 16-year-old boy after a suspected domestic incident that left a man dead in an alleyway late Sunday night.

A 911 caller reported two people fighting behind a home in the 600 block of Edmund Avenue West at 11:15 p.m. Sunday, with officers arriving to find a man "gravely injured" lying in the alley.

The man died at the scene despite lifesaving efforts from St. Paul Fire medics.

At the scene, two witnesses and a suspect – the teenage boy – were also found, with the two witnesses interviewed and released and the boy taken to the station for questioning.

Just after 6 a.m., police announced that the teen has been arrested for murder in connection to the man's death.
