St. Paul Police Chief Axel Henry announced Wednesday an arrest in the homicide investigation of Michael Brasel. Brasel was fatally shot over the weekend as he tried to stop a car break-in.

St. Paul police have arrested a teenager in connection with the shooting death of a man in his front yard last weekend after he tried to stop a car break-in.

Michael Brasel, 44, a father of two boys, a husband and a youth hockey coach, was shot just before 7:30 a.m. Saturday in the 2300 block of Chilcombe Avenue in the quiet St. Anthony Park neighborhood where the family has lived since 2008. Officials said the suspect was attempting to break into Brasel's wife's car.

Brasel died at HCMC about 30 minutes later from multiple gunshot wounds, the Hennepin County Medical Examiner's Office said.
