MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Police are investigating the death of a woman at a Coon Rapids apartment complex Thursday morning.

Officers were called to the 9200 block of University Avenue Northwest at about 1:45 a.m. on a report of a wounded man in the entry way of the Woodland North Apartments.

Police found the 24-year-old man in a pool of blood, and a knife was nearby. Residents helped him until EMS arrived.

Residents say officers then went inside an apartment and found the body of a female resident.

Police say the 34-year-old woman was dead, and that there was a previous relationship between her and the man found bleeding in the entryway.

“It’s really sad, it makes me very sad,” resident Chelsea Wolfson said. “They say that we’re safe, but they haven’t said who did it or where that person is, so it’s very scary.”

Police say they are not looking for a suspect right now. They believe the crime scene is the result of an incident between two people.

The Anoka County Sheriff’s Office is assisting with the investigation.

The man found in the entryway is in critical condition.

Police say they are working to determine what happened.
