DULUTH - The St. Louis County Medical Examiner’s Office has ruled the death of a 28-year-old man found in a downtown Duluth apartment Friday was a homicide by stabbing. Two men are in custody.

It is Duluth’s first homicide since 2010.

According to a Saturday news release from the Duluth Police Department, the renter of an apartment in the 100 block of East First Street in downtown Duluth called police at 8:22 a.m. and said he found a dead man inside his apartment.

Officers arrived on scene and found “suspicious injuries” on the victim, the news release said. The Medical Examiner’s Office determined that the victim, a Duluth resident, died from a knife wound. His name has not yet been released pending notification of family.

The man who called police, a 37-year-old Duluth resident, was arrested and is being held at the St. Louis County Jail pending formal charges of second-degree murder. Police also arrested a 47-year-old Duluth man, who is being held pending formal charges of aiding and abetting second-degree murder.

Police said the suspects and the victim knew each other.

The investigation is continuing, police said. Anyone with information is asked to call 911.
