Gunfire wounds man in same St. Paul block as weekend shooting death

A man was wounded by gunfire Tuesday evening in the same St. Paul block where a shooting took the life of a 22-year-old just four days earlier, police say.

The man suffered a non-life threatening gunshot wound to his leg shortly before 6:45 p.m. in the 2100 block of Glenridge Avenue, according to St. Paul police and emergency radio traffic.

On Saturday, 22-year-old Kacey Feiner was shot to death in the same block in the city’s Battle Creek neighborhood. It was not immediately clear whether the two shootings were related and no suspects were in custody, police said.

Tuesday’s shooting came just hours after city officials announced new measures aimed at curbing a recent rash of gun violence in St. Paul, including a trio of fatal shootings in the span of eight hours overnight Monday.
