Man killed in downtown Minneapolis parking ramp stabbings


Two men were stabbed, one fatally, in a downtown Minneapolis parking ramp early this morning. Security called police to the Ramp C parking lot on the 300 block of Second Avenue North, first reporting that a fight had broken out.

By the time cops arrived, the fight had escalated to a "man down" report.

Two men were found stabbed in the ramp, and EMS was unable to save the more gravely injured one. The second man suffered non-life-threatening stab wounds, and was taken to HCMC for treatment.

Police quickly apprehended a suspect, after witnesses fingered a man walking nearby as the killer.


The suspect was taken into custody "without incident almost immediately," according to the Minneapolis Police Department.

Neither the victim nor the suspect has been identified as of this morning.
