Man killed in fight

A man was killed in an early Sunday morning brawl off Hennepin Avenue, the Star Tribune reported Sunday. The homicide was the first in the downtown district since March 2006, when a 31-year-old man was shot outside Block E. The killing was also the third homicide in Minneapolis in a 52-hour period. Previously, there had not been a homicide in Minneapolis in a month. By Sunday evening, police had arrested a 20-year-old man in connection with the killing, which authorities said stemmed from an altercation over women. The killing is the 29th homicide in Minneapolis in 2007.
