The suspect fled the scene, so officials initiated a metro-wide search, police say.

Then around 1 p.m., 30-year-old Yeveginy Savenok turned himself in to the St. Paul Police Department. He's being held pending charges.

Police tell KARE 11 that they believe the suspect and victim were married and had two young kids.

Police have not yet released the victim's name.

The incident is still under investigation.
