A teenager was arrested Tuesday in connection with the fatal shooting of a man who was found inside an SUV that crashed late Monday on St. Paul's East Side.

The victim died at the scene of the crash, near York Avenue and Van Dyke Street in the Eastern Hazel Park neighborhood, said Police Sgt. Mike Ernster.

The arrest of the suspect, a 17-year-old boy, occurred Tuesday morning during a traffic stop in Little Canada near Interstate 35E, police said. The teen was jailed on suspicion of second-degree murder and being a minor in possession of a gun. Charges are pending.

Officers were called to the area about 10:30 p.m. after getting reports of "multiple shots fired" and that a vehicle had crashed into a tree, Ernster said.

Arriving officers found an SUV on the boulevard on the east side of Van Dyke Street and a man inside with a gunshot wound to his upper body, Ernster said.

Police administered first aid until paramedics arrived and pronounced the man dead, Ernster said. The man's identity has yet to be released.
