Man fatally stabbed, another hospitalized in north Minneapolis


A man was stabbed to death in north Minneapolis early Sunday morning. According to the Star Tribune, another man was hospitalized.

KSTP reports investigators were called to a home near Emerson Avenue N. and N. 36th Avenue on a report of a stabbing. Once they arrived, they found two injured men. One of them was pronounced dead at the scene.

The surviving man was taken to North Memorial Medical Center with non life threatening injuries.

According to KARE, the Hennepin County Medical Examiner will release the identity of the deceased after family members are notified.

The stabbings happen less than a week after Minneapolis Police Chief Janee Harteau made a personal plea for peace. She did this following deadly shootings last weekend in which two people were killed and at least three more were injured in three separate incidents in north Minneapolis.

On Wednesday, one day after she visited the area encouraging people living there to put down their guns, there was another incident in which three women were shot and hospitalized.
