Woman Is Found Dead Behind St. Paul Church
ST. PAUL (AP) – A 20-year-old woman is dead after a shooting behind a St. Paul church.
Police spokesman Howie Padilla says officers responded to a report of shots fired at about 2:45 p.m. Sunday and found the woman dead in a vehicle in an alley behind Iglesia de Dios Rios de Agua Viva (EE’-glay-see-ya day DEE’-ohs REE’-ohs day AHG’-wah VEE’-vah).
Relatives tell the Star Tribune Naressa Turner moved to Atlanta with her 3-year-old daughter this summer because she had been getting death threats over social media sites.
Her aunt Tara Green says she lived with her because she was trying to avoid this kind of violence.
Relatives say people mistakenly believed she had witnessed a murder this year in St. Paul.
The death is the 14th in St. Paul this year.
