Two people have been found dead at a home in St. Paul, and another has critical gunshot wounds.

St. Paul police have announced they found two "gravely injured" men in an apartment on the 200 block of Forbes Avenue at around 12:30 a.m. Thursday morning. They were soon pronounced dead by St. Paul fire medics.

Another man was found lying on the sidewalk with gunshot injuries near the intersection of 7th St. W and Smith Ave, which is near the site of the first shooting. He is currently in critical condition at Regions Hospital.

Police spokesman Steve Linders told the Pioneer Press: "We have two very large, complex crime scenes and we have a puzzle that we're trying to put together. Whether or not these two cases are related, we don't know. They may be, they may not be."

"No arrests have been made and a motive has yet to be determined in either of the two cases," St. Paul police said in its news release.

The police homicide unit is working with the Ramsey County Medical Examiner to identify the dead men.

Officers are canvassing the area gathering evidence and looking for witnesses, with a perimeter set up around both scenes, which is reportedly causing traffic problems in St. Paul.
