North St. Paul domestic dispute ends with shooting

Around 2:45 a.m. on Sunday April 2, a North St. Paul resident called police to report what turned out to be a shooting at a neighbor’s house in the 2100 block of Eldridge Avenue. 

One man was shot in the leg during a confrontation between himself and the owner of the home.

North St. Paul police said the man who was shot was accompanied by a female family member. Both were intoxicated at the time of the shooting and were breaking into the home to confront the homeowner.

According to police scanners, a nearby resident called police when he or she heard a woman running down the street screaming for help.

When police arrived, the man who was shot was found waiting in a vehicle parked in the driveway of the property. An ambulance took him to the hospital, and his injury was determined to be non-life-threatening.

According to North St. Paul Police, the 26-year-old homeowner admitted on the scene that he was the shooter and was taken into custody without incident; he has since been released.

Police have released few other details about the shooting as they continue to investigate what is being deemed a domestic dispute.

As of the deadline for this edition of the Review, charges had not been filed against anyone involved in the shooting.
