On Friday evening, police arrived at a home in Fort Wayne, Indiana and found the bodies of three young men, shot multiple times in what police called “execution style” murders.
The young men were Mohamedtaha Omar, age 23 (left) , Adam Mekki, age 20 (center) and Muhannad Tairab, age 17 (right). All 3 men were from Africa’s eastern Sahel region.
Police have identified no motive in the killing, which appears to be something of a mystery.
The modest white building had apparently become something of a “party house” used by local youths, but police said there was no known connection to gangs or any other violent organization.
Safety Director Rusty York told ABC 21 Alive the home belongs to owners who live in Indianapolis, Indiana.
‘Hopefully, you know, we’ll be able to focus in on exactly what the reason was, but as I said before, no reason to believe this was any type of hate crime, or focused because of their religion or their nationality whatsoever,’ York said.
