Any news or story on what happened on December 31 around 1-3am on the 26xx block of Hampshire Ave So in St Louis Park? Something about gunshots and a deceased person outside on the sidewalk or yard and the police and crime lab/medical examiner on scene... I grew up on 27xx and Hampshire and my family still lives there, so I was just curious as to what happened...

It was a suicide, according to the SLP city spokesperson. Thanks for asking!
