A man died at Regions Hospital in St. Paul after he suffered a gunshot wound in the Frogtown neighborhood early Wednesday morning.

St. Paul police say officers found the man at a home on the 700 block of Edmund Avenue at about 3:30 a.m. The man, noted to be in his 20s, was given aid until medics took him to Regions Hospital, where he died.
