The suspect in the fatal stabbing of a man at a north Minneapolis bus shelter turned himself in to police Saturday afternoon.
The 48-year-old suspect was interviewed and booked into the Hennepin County jail, where he is being held pending murder charges, said Minneapolis police Sgt. Steve McCarty.
About 7:30 p.m. Friday, police responded to a stabbing at 18th and Lyndale Avenues N. Attempts to revive the victim were unsuccessful, and he died at the scene.
Several witnesses were able to give good leads that were pursued by investigators, McCarty said.
The bus shelter is located toward the back of a Cub Foods and across the street from a mosque and public housing.
On Saturday afternoon, there were no signs of a crime at the shelter as people waited for the bus.
Larry Huff, 51, who lives nearby, said that it isn't uncommon for people who get alcohol at a nearby liquor store to come to the bus shelter and cause trouble. Huff, who walks with a cane, said he uses the shelter because it is one of a few close by.
"For a person that's disabled, you need a place to sit," he said.
Huff suggested that a camera be placed at the bus stop to make it safer.
