Two women had gotten into an altercation that led to the fatal stabbing, police said. The victim, who was found inside the transit center, was taken to Hennepin County Medical Center, where she was pronounced dead, police said in a news release.

“A fight happened near the ramp, and the victim ended up [in] there. We don’t believe this altercation started where it ended. We’re not exactly sure where it started," Minneapolis police spokesperson Scott Seroka told the Star Tribune.

The woman had reportedly been stabbed several times, KARE 11 saysFOX 9 is reporting she was stabbed in the neck.

Police had initially said they had taken someone into custody in connection with the stabbing, but in a later news release they noted a person of interest has been identified, but is not currently in custody.

Investigators do not believe this was a random act, police note.

Police continue to interview witnesses and review surveillance video.

The women's identities have not been released.
