A man was fatally stabbed near the Lake Street light-rail station Tuesday evening, Minneapolis police said.
Officers from the Third Precinct responded to the 2200 block of E. Lake Street at 7:16 p.m. after several people called 911 to report a stabbing, police said.
The victim was taken to Hennepin County Medical Center, where he died.
The Hennepin County medical examiner’s office will release the name of the victim and cause of death.
This is the 32nd homicide victim in Minneapolis this year, police said.
Metro Transit Blue Line trains and Lake Street traffic were running about 9:30 p.m. as Minneapolis police were processing the scene.
The Metro Transit bus stop near the crime scene was closed briefly.
“I heard someone holler,” said Mack Williams, 60, who lives in an apartment that overlooks the station. Williams saw someone run and fall near the Lake Street entrance of the LRT station.
Williams said the victim fell once, tried to get up and walk away, then collapsed a second time and did not get up again.
Investigators say they believe the victim and suspect are known to each other.
A portion of the stabbing was captured on surveillance cameras, police added.
There have been no arrests.
Anyone with information is encouraged to call police.
