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.

Police continue to interview witnesses and review surveillance video.
