One person has been arrested in connection with a shooting at a Twin Cities park Sunday.

The St. Paul Police Department said a 24-year-old Minneapolis man was taken into custody – that's after a shooting Sunday evening at Indian Mounds Park that the Pioneer Press reports ended with one person killed and another injured.

KARE 11 reports about 300 people were there when a fight started, and gunshots were fired.

Police are investigating.

Violence in the Twin Cities

St. Paul's first homicide of the year came about a month ago, when a 17-year-old was shot and killed. Charges have been filed in that case.

Since then there's been a body discovered in a stairwell, a death that was ruled a homicide. Days later a law clerk was shot and killed while at work – one person was arrested and charged.

Sunday night's shooting would mark at least the sixth killing in St. Paul this year. A Pioneer Press report shows there were 17 homicides in St. Paul in 2015.

Meanwhile, the Star Tribune recently looked at shootings in Minneapolis and found they were up significantly so far in 2016 – especially on the city's North side.

The Minneapolis Police Department's shots fired maps – which include actual shootings, the sound of shots fired, or ShotSpotter activation – notes there were more than 50 incidents from April 5-11.
