Mounds View stabbing: 1 dead, 1 injured at apartment complex
MOUNDS VIEW, Minn. (KMSP) -
One man is dead and another wounded after an overnight stabbing at an apartment complex in Mounds View, Minn.
The stabbing was reported around 8:45 p.m. Thursday on the 7700 block of Silver Lake Road. when Mounds View police arrived, they found 49-year-old Perry Paulson dead in the third floor hallway.
Just outside the apartment complex, officers found a 51-year-old man with a stab wound. He was taken to the hospital to be treated for non-life-threatening injuries.
Investigators did not want people in the apartment complex to see the dead man in the hallway so they used a ladder truck to take neighbors out a window.
"We are processing the scene which will take many hours and we are interviewing as many people as possible including tenants and people who live in other surrounding areas," said Police Chief Tom Kinney.
