Northeast Minneapolis stabbing turns into homicide
A stabbing victim found just after midnight on Sunday made it through part of the week, but died late Wednesday night. The 46-year-old victim, who has not yet been identified, was found stabbed inside an apartment building on the 600 block of Central Avenue Northeast.
He was taken to Hennepin County Medical Center, but succumbed to his stab wounds two days ago.
Minneapolis Police Sgt. Steve McCarty said several witnesses were still on the scene at the time police arrived, and one man was arrested.
The person arrested has yet to be charged, and his name has also not been released.
Police are still investigating the case, and anyone with valuable information can call the TIPS line at 612-692-TIPS.
