Officer uses tourniquet to stop bleeding after 20-year-old shot on St. Paul’s Rice street


Recommended Posts

A police officer used a tourniquet to stop the bleeding when a 20-year-old was shot in the arm in St. Paul’s North End, police said Wednesday.

A 60-year-old man flagged down an officer on Tuesday at 1:55 p.m. at Rice Street and Winnipeg Avenue and pointed down the block saying, “That guy just got shot,” according to a police report.

The officer found the 20-year-old a block away, at Rice and Atwater streets, where a friend was walking him back from the corner, said Steve Linders, a St. Paul police spokesman.

Paramedics took the young man to Regions Hospital with a non-life threatening injury.

A crowd of about 20 people gathered at the scene, but they “didn’t want to help or give information,” Linders said. No one had been arrested as of Wednesday.
