Police say a man died in an apparent stabbing Friday night at a bus shelter in Minneapolis, the Pioneer Press reports. As of Saturday, police were still investigating and no arrests had been made.

The victim has not yet been identified.

The stabbing took place at the shelter at Lyndale and 18th avenues in Minneapolis. A man who lives near the shelter tells the Star Tribune that it's not uncommon for people who've purchased alcohol at a nearby liquor store to "come to the bus shelter and cause trouble."
