A man has died outside the Crowne Plaza hotel near the Mall of America after suffering stab wounds.

Bloomington police was called to the Crowne Plaza at 3 Appletree Square to a report of a man laying in the surface parking lot to the east of the hotel.

They arrived along with paramedics just after noon to find a 38 year old with stab wounds to his "upper torso."

He was taken to Hennepin County Medical Center where he was pronounced dead on arrival. 

"At this time we are not searching for a suspect and feel there is no risk to the public," Bloomington PD Deputy Chief Mike Hartley said.

The Hennepin County Crime Lab joined Bloomington detectives on the scene.
