(Tuesday, Nov. 3, 2020) Saint Paul police are investigating an apparent homicide after a man was found dead on the 2200 block of Seventh Street West on Tuesday, Nov. 3.

Officers responded to a 911 call at about 9:15 p.m. and found the man inside a house. He was suffering from what appeared to be a gunshot wound, not breathing and unresponsive. The officers attempted to render aid and called St. Paul Fire medics to the scene. Unfortunately, the victim was pronounced dead without being transported to a hospital.
