A violent year in St. Paul continued early Friday morning with a deadly shooting in the Highland Park neighborhood. 

Officers from St. Paul Police Department arrived at the scene on the 1300 block of Davern Street around 2:15 a.m., responding to a 911 call from a woman who they found sitting in the passenger seat of an SUV stopped on the lawn of an apartment complex. 

She had been shot in the leg, and sitting next to her in the driver's seat was her husband, who had been fatally shot. He was pronounced dead at the scene. 

The woman was transported by paramedics to Regions Hospital where she received treatment and is expected to survive. 

A homicide investigation is ongoing and no arrests have been made. Anyone with information is asked to contact St. Paul PD by calling 651-266-5650. 

The shooting marks the 27th homicide in St. Paul in 2019. 

"It's frustrating," St. Paul PD spokesperson Steve Linders said Friday morning, via KSTP. "It's concerning, to say the least, and I can tell you that everybody at the St. Paul Police Department – from our patrol officers, to our investigators, to our leadership – we're all 100 percent committed to addressing this problem."
