Police investigate triple homicide in St. Paul’s Payne-Phalen area

On Sunday afternoon in St. Paul, five individuals were shot, three of them fatally, in a “unthinkable act,” according to the police.

Around 4:30 p.m., police were called to the Payne-Phalen area in response to a complaint of several shootings. According to Sgt. Mike Ernster, a spokesperson for the St. Paul police department, they discovered two injured persons in front of a house in the 900 block of Case Avenue, close to Forest Street, and they informed authorities that there were more casualties inside.

Three persons who were inside the house were declared dead at the spot by paramedics, according to Ernster. The two further individuals were sent to a hospital for treatment. Regarding their situations, police withheld information.

Police didn’t say how many people they’re searching for, and no one was immediately placed under custody.

According to Ernster, it was “one of the most intricate crime scenes” that St. Paul police had ever seen.

Investigators are trying to find out who was there when the gunshots happened and what caused the violence.

According to Ernster, police have been summoned to the residence 17 times in the last year, including for allegations of serious assault, domestic violence, and disorderly behavior.

With the shootings on Sunday, St. Paul has now had 27 killings so far this year. In the city at same time last year, there were 22.
