Jeffery Paulson identified as northeast Minneapolis stabbing victim

Jeffery Paulson has been identified by the Hennepin County Medical Examiner's office as the man killed in a homicide early Sunday.

Paulson, 46, lived in an apartment above Otter's Saloon, but was stabbed in a different apartment in the building, not his own, the Star Tribune reports. Paulson was found stabbed, and taken to Hennepin County Medical Center, where he survived until late Wednesday night.

There were several witnesses at the scene, and one man was arrested and released, but he was released from jail without charge.

A 16-year-old also sustained less serious injuries during the incident. The number of witnesses to the incident could run as high as seven, the Star Tribune reports.
