Man dies after shooting in alley behind St. Paul grocery store

The victim died in hospital on Tuesday morning after the Monday evening shooting.

A man has died after being shot in a St. Paul alleyway, becoming the city's first homicide victim of 2019.

St. Paul Police spokesman Mike Ernster says the victim was brought to Regions Hospital at 8:30 p.m. on Monday in a private vehicle with gunshot wounds, and died from his injuries on Tuesday morning.

Investigators determined that the shooting happened in an alley behind 440 University Avenue, near Arundel Street and the Western Avenue light rail station.

At this stage, nobody has been arrested in connection with the shooting, with Ernster calling on any witnesses or people with information to come forward.

440 University Avenue is home to the Sunrise Grocery, whose owner Kodjo Alagbo told the Star Tribune he was helping customers when he heard shots, before someone came in and told him the shooting happened behind his business.

Anyone with information about the shooting is asked to call the St. Paul PD homicide unit at 651-266-5650.
