Man in his 50s found fatally shot on St. Paul sidewalk

Police in St. Paul are investigating a homicide after a dead man was found lying on the sidewalk early Friday morning.

St. Paul police say medics were called to the 600 block of Dale Street North around 3:10 a.m. on a report of a man lying on the sidewalk in front of a building. When they arrived on scene, they found the man was dead with trauma to his face.

Police then responded to the scene because it wasn't immediately clear what caused the man's death. The Ramsey County Medical Examiner determined the man, who is in his 50s, had been shot. 

Authorities haven't identified the man but will once his family is notified. 

No arrests have been made. Homicide investigators are working to find the person or people responsible for his death, including looking for any surveillance video that could help determine what happened. There was still an active police presence at the scene at 2:30 p.m. on Friday. 

Anyone with information on the man's death is asked to call 651-266-5650. 

This is the 21st homicide in St. Paul this year.
