ST. PAUL, MN (AP) - Authorities have ruled the deaths of two friends found shot about a mile apart in St. Paul a homicide and a suicide.
 
A spokesman for the Ramsey County medical examiner's office says 21-year-old Jordan Hughes was a homicide victim. Hughes was found with a gunshot wound in the Summit-University area on the night of July 24.
 
The medical examiner's office ruled that 22-year-old Mandela Jackson committed suicide. Jackson was found dead about nine hours later in the Frogtown area.
 
A St. Paul police spokesman tells the Star Tribune (http://bit.ly/N2Oug0) that authorities are still investigating whether Jackson was responsible for Hughes' death.
 
The two men were basketball teammates at Patrick Henry High School in north Minneapolis.
