FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WOWO): A motive has still not been revealed following the discovery of three people that were found dead this week.

The Allen County Coroner did reveal that Mohamedtaha Omar, 23 Adam Kamel Mekki, 20, and Muhannad Adam Tairab, 17, all of Fort Wayne, were shot in the head inside a home on East Lewis Street near Francis Street. The Journal-Gazette says they were killed execution style.

The newspaper is also reporting that Fort Wayne police did rule out religion or nationality as a motive. The three men were not related, but their families hailed from the Chad and Sudan region of Africa.

Public Safety Director Rusty York and Police Chief Gerry Hamilton said the house they lived in had become something of a party house lately. They also note that the three were not known to be in any gangs.

Both Hamilton and York admit they’re simply not sure at all what led to the execution deaths of Omar, Mekki, and Tairab. The investigation continues.
