Woman shot dead, husband injured in St. Paul

A woman was shot dead and her husband was shot and seriously injured in a St. Paul home Sunday morning, the Star Tribune reported.
Police said the gunfire happened in the 1700 block of Minnehaha Avenue. The 25-year-old woman was killed and her husband, 27, was seriously wounded with a leg injury. The man was taken to Regions Hospital, where he was treated and released. He was then brought to police headquarters for questioning.
Sergeant Paul Schnell said no further details were known about the circumstances leading to the shooting or who fired the shots.
Police were notified of a suspected burglary around 6:30 a.m., and were informed of the shooting as they were on their way to the house, the Pioneer Press said.
Only the husband and wife were home at the time of the shooting. Schnell said.
"The circumstances of this shooting remain a major focus for investigators," Schnell said. "At this point, we simply do not have enough details to be able to speak with any certainty about the circumstances or the public risk."
