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.

It was the second homicide in Minneapolis so far this year. In total, there were 32 in the city in 2014.
