Police: 1 Dead, No Arrests In Minneapolis Stabbing

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – Authorities said one person has died after an early-morning stabbing on the south side of Minneapolis.

Police responded to the incident at about 3 :06 a.m. near the area of East Lake Street and 5th Avenue South. When authorities arrived, a woman had been stabbed and was lying in the street. She was transported to Hennepin County Medical Center, where she later died.
