St. Paul police continue to investigate a fatal shooting in the city's Payne-Phalen neighborhood early Wednesday that left a man dead.

Officers went to the 800 block of Maryland Avenue near Mendota Street about 1:30 a.m. after several people called 911 to report a shooting and at least one person yelling for help, said Sgt. Mike Ernster with the St. Paul Police Department.

Police confirmed a man had been shot multiple times. Paramedics arrived and pronounced the man dead, Ernster said.

The victim's name has not been released; Ernster was unsure about his age.

Homicide investigators remained on the scene hours after the shooting to collect and process evidence. Ernster offered few other details about what unfolded, including who might be responsible for the city's 11th homicide this year.

"These cases are complex and in most cases we need help," he said.

No arrests have been announced.

Anybody with information is asked to call 651-266-5650.
