Alleged burglar kills one, injures another

One woman was killed and her husband injured in a St. Paul shooting early Sunday.

A burglar allegedly entered the house at the 1700 block of West Minnehaha Avenue and shot the two around 6:30 a.m., WCCO said.

The woman, Heidi Firkus, was dead at the scene, while her husband, Nicholas Firkus, was taken to Regions Hospital, the Star Tribune said.

Police investigating believe the incident was a stranger-on-stranger crime, though at this time, little evidence points to a burglary or sign of struggle, though they continue to investigate, the Star Tribune said.
