MINNEAPOLIS — Police say three men have been arrested in connection with an early morning shootout at a St. Paul bar that left one woman dead and 14 people injured. Police Chief Todd Axtell said all three men — a 33-year-old, 29-year-old and 32-year-old — are hospitalized with injuries suffered during the shooting.


One woman in her 20s died. Fourteen other people were taken to area hospitals for treatment. All of them are expected to survive. Good Samaritans worked with police to help victims while paramedics made it to the scene.


“I can only describe it as hellish,” St. Paul police spokesperson Steve Linders said. “I think about the young woman who died. One minute she’s having a good time, the next minute she’s lying in her friends’ arms who are trying to save her life, and she didn’t make it. I can’t think of anything worse.”
