One woman has been killed and a man injured in a shooting at an apartment building in downtown St. Paul.

St. Paul police confirmed on its Facebook page officers were called to the building on the 200 block of 5th St. East just after 3:30 a.m. Saturday after reports of shots fired.

When they arrived, they found a man with multiple gunshot wounds and a woman who was later pronounced dead at the scene.
