MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Police are investigating a fatal stabbing that happened at a Minneapolis parking ramp.

Just after 3 a.m. Monday, officers were called to a fight on the second level of Ramp C located in the 300 block of 2nd Avenue North.

While police were on their way there, ramp security reported a man down in the skyway connected to the ramp.

Officers arrived and found two men with stab wounds. One was pronounced dead at the scene; another had non-life threatening injuries and was taken to the Hennepin County Medical Center.

Witnesses pointed out the man who allegedly did the stabbing and he was arrested.

“It initially came out as a fight and as our officers were arriving they received updated information that a male was down. So I assume some sort of incident did occur prior to this individual dying here,” said Minneapolis Police Sgt. Stephen McCarty.

The identities of those involved have not been released.

Police are investigating what led to the stabbing. They ask anyone with information to call the TIPS Line at 612-692-8477.

    1. Tammy Belka says:

      bartenders, waitstaff, etc would be heading home at about that time

    2. Brian says:

      How does the saying go? The only folks out that late at night/early in the morning are the cops and the criminals. With the rare exception of the folks Tammy is talking about.

    They’re working, just not what you and I would consider “work.”

    You are all acting like you have been hiding in Tora Bora mountains with the Talibans? Minneapolis approves dance clubs and bars to open until 2AM (some even to 3AM). Go out to downtown for dancing and enjoy the scene. Horse rides, bike rides, good food, nice scenery. But incidents like this do dumpen the mood always…
