MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — St. Paul police say they arrested a man Tuesday after he called 911 to report he’d killed his wife.
The 46-year-old turned himself in at the Ramsey County Law Enforcement Center and was booked into jail on suspicion of homicide.
He allegedly called authorities just after 3 a.m., saying he had shot his wife at their home on the 30 block of Winnipeg Avenue West.
Officers found his wife, a woman in her 40s, dead in their home.
Investigators have not yet determined a motive.
Police said this is the city’s 30th homicide of the year.
WCCO-TV does not typically name people arrested until they are formally charged with a crime.
