Police continue to search for a second suspect in the killing of a man in St. Paul last month, but a break in the case has evolved after a 21-year-old man was arrested by an FBI Task Force in Chicago.
The St. Paul Police Department announced Friday the Chicago man was arrested in connection to the July 26 homicide of 28-year-old Devonte Ingram. The 21-year-old was picked up by the FBI on Friday, Aug. 20, then extradited to St. Paul and booked into the Ramsey County Jail on Friday, Sept. 3.
Ingram was found suffering from gunshot wounds in a vehicle on the 1700 block of St. Claire Avenue around 1:30 p.m. July 26, just blocks from Macalester College.
Medics transported Ingram to Regions Hospital, where he died a short time after arrival.
The 21-year-old Chicago man's role in the homicide will remain unclear until the Ramsey County Attorney's Office files formal charges. Meanwhile, police continue to search for a second suspect.
“We know there’s another suspect out there, running and hiding," said St. Paul Police Chief Todd Axtell. "And I know we won’t stop until he’s found. Because that’s what the victim, his family and our community expect and deserve. Because that’s the way our guardians are wired--they work tirelessly for justice.”
Anyone with information on the shooting is asked to call 651-266-5650.
