Authorities investigating after 3 fatally shot in home

Authorities in Indiana are investigating the shooting deaths of two men and a teenager found inside a Fort Wayne home.

The bodies of 23-year-old Mohamedtaha Omar, 20-year-old Adam Kamel Mekki and 17-year-old Muhannad Adam Tairab were found last week by police responding to a “problem unknown” dispatch.

The Allen County Coroner’s Office says they died of gunshot wounds, and the deaths have been ruled homicides. Police Chief Garry Hamilton tells WANE-TV each victim was shot multiple times.

Fort Wayne Safety Director Rusty York tells WPTA-TV the residence where they were found was known as a party house for teens and young adults of African descent.

York says authorities don’t have any reason to believe the killings were a hate crime.
