A shooting death early Thursday has investigators on the scene on the East Side of St. Paul. The killing occurred in the 800 block of E. Cook Avenue, just east of Arcade Street, police said, Thursday, Sept. 3, 2020, in St. Paul.

St. Paul police are investigating overnight shootings that killed a woman and left another in critical condition Thursday following an attempted robbery.

The fatality sent officers to the city's East Side around 3:30 a.m., where a bystander had called 911 to report a woman shot numerous times. Responders found the victim outside a home in the 800 block of E. Cook Avenue, just east of Arcade Street. She could not be revived.

A motive for the killing was not immediately clear, but investigators believe it may have been domestic in nature. A potential suspect, thought to be the victim's ex-boyfriend, was seen running southeast from the scene, according to emergency dispatch audio.
