Three people were fatally shot in different Minneapolis neighborhoods within a 17-hour span, officials said.

No arrests have been announced nor motives addressed in any of the homicides.

The latest killing occurred about 4:40 a.m. Friday in the 2200 block of N. 5th Avenue, police said. Officers arrived and saw a man in his 20s suffering from gunshot wounds, according to police.

The man was taken by emergency responders to HCMC, where he was pronounced dead. His identity has yet to be released.

Around 2:15 p.m. Thursday, officers were sent to the 100 block of W. Lake Street about what they were told was a possible drug overdose in an alley. However, they arrived to find a man who had been shot, police said. He also died at HCMC.

"Officers believe that the injured man may be associated with a nearby homeless encampment," a police statement read.

Late Friday afternoon, the Hennepin County Medical Examiner's Office identified that victim as Abdirizak Mahamed Abader, 27, of Mankato, and noted he was shot in the chest.

The first shooting happened just after noon Thursday in the 1100 block of N. Morgan Avenue. A man was shot and later died at HCMC, police said. An argument between a group of people is believed to have led to the gunfire, according to police. Release of his identity is pending.

The Medical Examiner's Office identified him late Friday afternoon as Di'jon Chase Legore-Banks, 32, of Blaine. The office said Legore-Banks had been shot several times.

There have been 21 homicides in the city this year, according to a Star Tribune database. That compares with 23 at this time last year.
