It happened at a residence in Bloomington. A news release from the Bloomington Police Department says officers responded to a 911 caller who reported needing help and that someone was inside of their home around 4:40 a.m.
Upon arrival officers found a 72-year-old woman and a 74-year-old man suffering from stab wounds and blunt force injuries. The man and woman were taken to a hospital where the man died from his injuries.
Officials say his name will be released by the Hennepin County Medical Examiner. The initial investigation indicates the attack was not random.
