A domestic dispute in St. Paul left a man dead and a woman hospitalized on Saturday. 

According to St. Paul police, officers were sent to the 800 block of Edmund Ave. around 12:15 a.m. on a report of a domestic assault. The woman calling 911 told dispatch that her boyfriend had assaulted her before she was able to escape to a neighbor's house, but her boyfriend was armed a handgun and trying to break in. 

The man fled the area when police arrived, though officers found a large pool of blood near a broken porch window. 

A short time later the man was found dead in his vehicle after crashing into another motorist at the intersection of Edmond Ave. and Dale St. 

A police spokeswoman said the man died of injuries related to breaking the window. 

The man's identity and official cause of death will be released at a later stage by the medical examiner. The woman was taken to a hospital with minor injuries, police said.
