A 16-year-old has died a week after he was fatally shot in St. Paul, while another teen held in connection with the shooting may soon be charged with murder.

Kalven Sin Suy of Savage died from his injuries Feb. 18. Police first learned of the teen's injury sometime after 1 a.m. Feb. 10. Officers responded to Western Avenue and Topping Street for reports of a male being shot and found Suy with a gunshot wound to his abdomen. Medics transported him to Regions Hospital, where he initially was recovering from the injury.

On Feb 16, investigators searched a residence in the 800 block of Western Avenue N. and arrested a 17-year-old in relation to the shooting. He was taken to the Ramsey County Juvenile Detention Center on suspicion of aggravated robbery and assault. Prosecutors with the Ramsey County Attorney's Office have petitioned to charge him with murder and aggravated robbery.

Suy's death marks the third homicide in St. Paul this year, matching the number reported at this time last year, according to a Star Tribune database.
