Indiana officials investigate fatal shootings of three muslim men in Fort Wayne

Screen-Shot-2015-11-03-at-7.41.26-PM-e1446597923261Authorities in Indiana are seeking information after two men and a teenager were found shot to death last week 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 on Wednesday evening by officers responding to a “problem unknown” dispatch.Each was shot multiple times, police chief Garry Hamilton told WANE-TV. The Allen County coroner’s office said the deaths had been ruled homicides.The families of the three men were from central Africa and belonged to a community that is heavily Muslim, Hamilton and Fort Wayne safety director Rusty York told the (Fort Wayne) Journal-Gazette. Neither York nor police chief Hamilton knew whether the three were religious.York said authorities did not have any reason to believe the killings were a hate crime.Vox Media published a story on Saturday that called the killings “mysterious”, prompting people on social media to question why it did not receive wider news coverage. The killings came in the same week as mass shootings in Kalamazoo, Michigan; Hesston, Kansas; and Belfair, Washington.The residence where the bodies were found was known as a party house for teens and young adults of African descent, York told WPTA-TV.
