Police say two suspects have been arrested after they allegedly struck and killed a man with a vehicle Tuesday morning near downtown St. Paul.

According to the St. Paul Police Department spokesman Sgt. Natalie Davis, at around 4:30 a.m., a truck driver reported seeing a man lying in the street near Broadway and East 10th streets. The victim, a man in his 20s, had suffered severe head trauma, and emergency personnel pronounced him dead at the scene.

After reviewing surveillance footage, homicide investigators were able to find two suspects and interview them, Davis said. Police determined that the suspects had intentionally struck the victim with a vehicle.

The suspects — a man and a woman — were arrested Tuesday evening and are being held on suspicion of second-degree murder. They haven't yet been formally charged.
