Three fatally shot in St. Paul within 9 hours


September 11, 2019

Reacting to a string of shootings that left three men dead in less than 12 hours, St. Paul Police Chief Todd Axtell is calling for a “full department mobilization,” including beefing up patrols citywide by bringing in officers who would normally be off.

The nine-hour stretch of violence between Monday afternoon and early Tuesday unfolded across three different neighborhoods and in one case took the life of a man attempting to act as a good Samaritan. Axtell, at a news conference with Mayor Melvin Carter and community leaders Tuesday, called the events unprecedented in his 30 years with the department.
