Three men have been taken into custody in connection with an overnight shooting at a bar in St. Paul that left one dead and 14 others wounded Sunday.
Multiple 911 callers “frantically begged for help,” reporting shots fired around 12:15 a.m. at the Seventh Street Truck Park bar, about a block away from the Xcel Energy Center.
Police found a “chaotic scene” and 15 people with gunshot wounds. After securing the area, officers worked with good Samaritans to aid the wounded before St. Paul fire medics were able to enter the scene safely, according to police.
“There were gunshot wound victims lying in the street outside the bar,” said Steve Linders, public information officer for the St. Paul Police Department. “There were gunshot wound victims lying on the sidewalk outside the bar. There were gunshot wound victims lying on the floor inside the bar.”
A woman in her 20s was pronounced dead at the scene; 14 others were taken to the hospital and are expected to live.
Family identified the victim as Marquisha Wiley. She will be formally identified following an autopsy report from the Ramsey County Medical Examiner’s Office.
Three men — ages 33, 32 and 29 — have been taken into custody and are being treated at the hospital for their injuries, police announced shortly before noon Sunday. Police said once the suspects are discharged from the hospital, they will be booked into Ramsey County Jail and will await possible charges.
