ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Two more shootings in St. Paul during a violent year have left a student-athlete dead and a suspect wounded by a U.S. marshal.
The St. Paul Pioneer Press reports officers were dispatched Wednesday afternoon to a west side residence where they found a teenage boy had been shot in his upper body. Family and friends identified him as 17-year-old Da’Qwan Jones-Morris, a senior at Henry Sibley High School in Mendota Heights and captain of the football team.
Two people in the home were taken in for questioning.
Meanwhile, the second shooting happened during a gas station melee when a federal marshal who happened on the scene opened fire, wounding a suspect about 5 p.m.
The city has had 29 killings this year, the most in 25 years.
