MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Authorities in the south metro are investigating Tuesday after a dead woman and a severely injured man were found in a hotel room.
Eden Prairie officials say police responded shortly before 11 a.m. on a welfare check at the Residence Inn on the 7700 block of Flying Cloud Drive. Inside, officers found a woman’s body in a guest room along with a man suffering “significant injuries.”
Emergency crews brought the man to Hennepin Healthcare for treatment. The name of the dead woman has not been released.
A criminal complaint identified the man as Ryan Rooney. He is currently in Hennepin County Jail.
Rooney is charged with second-degree murder and child endangerment, according to a complaint.
Investigators believe the incident was not random. There is no threat to the public, police say.
