Light Rail Station
A Minneapolis man is charged with murder in connection to the stabbing death of a 58-year-old man at a light rail transit station in Minneapolis Saturday. The Hennepin County Attorney’s Office says police were dispatched to the Lake Street – Midtown Station along the Blue Line at about 1:30 p.m. on reports of an assault in progress.
It’s being called the Grand Central Station of Minnesota. The newest light rail station opened Saturday at Target Field in downtown Minneapolis. It will serve as a hub for the light rail as well as Northstar trains. Commuters can also connect to bus routes and bike trails there.
