More Metro Murders

Authorities in Bloomington are investigating a shooting/murder from early this morning: "Bloomington man shot to death outside home".

Bloomington police are investigating the murder of an 18-year-old man who was shot to death early this morning outside his home.

Authorities told reporters at the scene that the man was on a cell phone when he was shot while outside his home on Russell Av. near 108th St.
There is no known motive or suspect information.

In St. Paul, however, a body has turned up in a cemetary (no, that's not redundant - it wasn't supposed to be there), as KSTP News reports: "Homicide investigation after man's body found in St. Paul Cemetery".

Police in St. Paul are investigating a homicide after a teenage girl visiting her mother's grave found a man's body in the Calvary Cemetery on Front Street Sunday afternoon.

"Theres [sic] suspicious circumstances, it's a body found in a cemetery that doesn't belong there," St. Paul Police Officer Pete Crum told 5 EYEWITNESS NEWS.
And I'm pleased to report there were no murders in Minneapolis yesterday.
