MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Minneapolis police have a man in custody after a woman was shot and killed Thanksgiving night.

According to police, someone called 911 just before 10 o’clock at night to report the shooting at a home at 26th and James avenues north.

Officers arrived to find a woman in her 20s suffering from a gunshot wound. She later died at North Memorial. Police also found an armed man at the scene, who was arrested.

Investigators are looking into the relationship, if any, between the man and the woman, but they do believe this was a domestic-related death.

The man police arrested was convicted of misdemeanor assault last year, stemming from an October, 2016 incident. Charges have not yet been filed.

The medical examiner’s office will release the woman’s name at a later date.
