MINNEAPOLIS, MN ( – In a major breakthrough for law enforcement, a long-standing cold case involving a 2013 murder near U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis has been cracked with the arrest of 30-year-old Suleiman Ali in Grand Forks this week.

Ali, who had been on the run since the incident, was apprehended by authorities in Grand Forks before being extradited back to Minneapolis to face charges related to the shooting death of another man in October of 2013.

The arrest comes after new DNA evidence and a crucial witness testimony emerged, linking Ali to the crime scene. Despite his alleged attempts to flee the country in the aftermath of the shooting, law enforcement agencies persisted in their pursuit of justice.

The murder, which occurred in close proximity to the bustling U.S. Bank Stadium, sent shockwaves through the Minneapolis community at the time. However, the case gradually faded into obscurity until recent developments reignited the investigation.

With Ali now in custody, authorities are optimistic about finally obtaining closure for the victim’s family and bringing a sense of justice to the community. The arrest serves as a testament to the perseverance and dedication of law enforcement officers who refuse to let cold cases remain unsolved.

As legal proceedings unfold, the details surrounding Ali’s alleged involvement in the 2013 murder are expected to come to light. His apprehension stands as a poignant reminder that justice knows no statute of limitations and that the passage of time will not hinder the relentless pursuit of truth.

As the Minneapolis community reflects on this significant development, they stand united in their resolve to seek justice for the victim and ensure that those responsible for such heinous crimes are held accountable.
