Two people were arrested after a local YouTube personality was killed at a St. Paul house party over the weekend.
Prince M. Pope, 32, of St. Paul, was shot to death early Sunday at a Frogtown duplex, according to St. Paul police. A 21-year-old man from St. Paul and 24-year-old man from Bloomington were arrested in connection with the shooting. The Ramsey County attorney’s office is reviewing the case for possible charges.
Officers found Pope dead at about 2 a.m. when they arrived at the residence, in the 500 block of Van Buren Avenue, near Dale Street and Minnehaha Avenue. Another man, identified as Rico Jackson, 27, of St. Paul, suffered a knife wound and was taken to Regions Hospital in St. Paul, said Sgt. Paul Paulos, a spokesman for the St. Paul Police Department. Jackson’s injuries were not life-threatening.
Pope had his own video blog on YouTube in which he uploaded commentary, reviews and comedy sketches. His “Prince P TV” channel has almost 7,000 subscribers.
