September 26, 2018

A fight between two men inside a Cub Foods in Minneapolis ended with one of them dead in the parking lot and the other in jail, authorities said Wednesday.

The clash at the Cub in the 2800 block of 26th Avenue S. drew officers to the scene about 11 p.m. Tuesday, where they found one of the men down outside the store, police said.

The man was taken to Hennepin County Medical Center, where he died, police added.

Emergency audio dispatch revealed that the man was unconscious at the scene and “bleeding from the head pretty badly.”

Officers quickly located the other man at a home nearby and arrested him. The suspect, who turns 56 on Thursday, remains jailed on suspicion of manslaughter. He has yet to be charged. The Star Tribune generally does not identify suspects before they are charged.

The dead man’s identity has yet to be released, and police have yet to disclose a motive behind the fight.

Police spokesman Scott Seroka said he doesn’t believe either man worked at the store.
