Police pledge ramped-up patrols
With three shooting deaths in two different lower East Side neighborhoods, police say they are stepping up patrols nearby.
“We as a police department are fed up,” said Steve Linders, spokesperson for the St. Paul Police Department. Linders said residents in the Railroad Island and Dayton’s Bluff neighborhoods, where the incidents took place, will see an increase in patrolling officers in the wake of the incidents.

Sam Sellie won't let prosthetic leg slow him down
This past April, Sam Sellie, 21, went in for a routine heart surgery to have a leaky aortic valve replaced. The next day, he went into cardiac arrest and ended up back on the operating table. He spent the next two weeks in a medically-induced coma with a machine supporting his heart and lungs.
When he woke up in a hospital bed, he was completely unaware of what his close friends and family already knew: his heart had been saved, but his left leg had been amputated below the knee.
