A preliminary investigation found that a 39-year-old man was involved in some kind of altercation with an unidentified person, who pulled out a gun and shot the man multiple times, according to police.

He was taken to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead, police said.

About five hours later, Southern District patrol officers responded to the 100 block of Cherry Hill Road for a report of an unresponsive male. They found a man with gunshot wounds to the upper part of his body.

He was pronounced dead at the scene, according to police, who described the man as an adult but didn’t specify his age. No additional information about the incident was released.

At about noon, Eastern District officers responded to a report of the shooting in the 800 block of N. Belnord Ave. Officers found a 33-year-old man with a gunshot wound to his upper body. He was transported to an area hospital where he died from his injuries.

Police did not identify any of the men killed as of Monday afternoon.
