Police investigating the death of a man who was found with a gunshot wound on a Red Wing street have arrested a "person of interest."

Red Wing Police Department confirmed on its Facebook page Tuesday that Dangelo Masterjohn, 27, was found dead from a bullet wound lying on the sidewalk in the 400 block of Sanderson Street just after midnight Tuesday.

An appeal to find the shooter was issued and later on Tuesday police made an arrest.

According to the Red Wing Republican Eagle, the suspect was taken into custody across the Mississippi River in Pierce County, Wisconsin for an unrelated offense.

Red Wing Police Chief told the newspaper that there's nothing to suggest the community is in danger.

Masterjohn had a criminal past, with the Pioneer Press reporting he was convicted of aiding a fellow gang member in the 2012 fatal shooting of Naressa Turner in St. Paul's Dayton's Bluff neighborhood.

He served 30 days in jail for withholding information from the police, the newspaper said, with Turner's murder said to have been in retaliation for her alleged involvement an early killing of an East Side Boys gang member.

According to FOX 9, it's the first homicide Red Wing has seen in nine years.

Masterjohn's girlfriend told the TV station she saw him Monday night, when he left her house to hang out with some friends. He was found a few hours later less than a mile away.
