A man was fatally stabbed on the east side of St. Paul on Thursday night, killing him for the 35th time this year, causing the most deadly damage in the history of the capital.
Police officers responded to reports of outside turmoil at 1700 blocks on Easr 7th Avenue shortly before 8 pm. According to a police spokesman, they found an unresponsive man in his twenties with a puncture wound in his chest.
He was taken to Regions Hospital and later died of an injury. His murder now represents a tough milestone for the city, which has surpassed its one-year murder record. In 2020, following historic gun violence, the city set a record of 34 deaths.
“None of us wanted to reach this record,” Sgt said. Natalie Davis said at an overnight press conference. “This is a sad night for St. Paul.”
The Ramsey County Medical Inspector’s Office will publish the victim’s name until the family is notified.
No arrests were made in this case, but investigators identified the person of interest. Anyone who has information or may have witnessed an attack will be asked to call the detective at 651-266-5650.
