Authorities are investigating an incident that left one man dead and another with a stab wound in St. Anthony this weekend. 

It happened late Saturday afternoon in a home on the 2400 block of 39th Avenue, where police were called on a report of "a deceased male inside... with obvious signs of trauma" as well as "another male inside the home with an apparent self-inflicted stab wound to the chest," per a news release from the local police department:

Upon arrival, the officers met with "a family member of the victims, who had discovered them while conducting a check of their welfare."

The man with the stab wound was taken into police custody and transported to a hospital via ambulance, the release says.
