Man shot dead

A man was shot and killed in St. Paul on Wednesday in what appears to be a drug deal gone bad.

Robert Renville, 20, was shot around 6 p.m., and was taken to Regions Hospital in St. Paul shortly after. He died there at around 8 p.m.

Renville, along with two others, were fired upon and shot while driving, police said. Police have arrested a 24-year-old from St. Paul in connection with the shooting. Livon Lucket, 19, was shot in the leg and Russell Robinson, 40, was shot in the arm.

The Pioneer Press reported that another person who avoided the bullets drove away, and followed an “erratic� path through the West Side, making stops along the way.

Police said the incident was not gang-related.
