27 October 2022

ROSEVILLE, Minn. — The homicide victim in a Roseville incident that led to a number of lockdowns Tuesday has been identified.

Authorities say that 88-year-old Patricia Frances Maslow died as a result of sharp and blunt-force injuries sustained in the attack. Investigators say that she is the grandmother of the 17-year-old who was taken into custody Tuesday.

A 55-year-old woman — the suspect’s mother — remains hospitalized due to blunt force trauma. A 23-year-old was also taken to the hospital with head trauma but has since been released. Two other adults were treated for minor injuries. There were six people inside the house at the time of the killing.

Police said that there had been no police calls to the scene of the crimes prior to Tuesday’s incident.

Charges are expected to be filed sometime Thursday.

An alert went out Tuesday morning. St. Paul Mayor Melvin Carter said shortly thereafter that the alert “inadvertently went out wider than intended.” Roseville Police Chief Erika Scheider said the alert was only intended for the surrounding neighborhood. 

Ramsey County apologized for the alert and said it is “actively reviewing this incident.”
