Police have arrested a man in Iowa suspected of a fatal shooting outside a bar in northeast Minneapolis last weekend.

The Star Tribune reports that a 30-year-old man from Fridley was taken into custody in connection with the second homicide in Minneapolis in 2015.

The newspaper notes that victim Robert Urman was shot six times – once in the heart – in the early hours of Saturday morning outside the Northeast Palace bar at 2500 NE 4th St.

According to WCCO, the suspect was arrested in Iowa in relation to a separate incident and was then arrested on a warrant for second-degree murder over the Minneapolis shooting after allegedly being picked out of a lineup.

Witnesses told police they saw an argument between the two men, which started in the bar, spill out onto the street, KARE 11 reports.
