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.

A suspect in the shootings was found on the third floor of the building and was taken into custody without incident. He is currently being questioned.

The wounded man was taken to Regions Hospital for treatment.

The woman's identity will be released by the Ramsey County Medical Examiner, which is investigating the cause of death.

It was the second fatal shooting in the Twin Cities on Saturday morning, with a man dying in hospital after being shot in north Minneapolis at around 2:30 a.m.
