Police said that about 3:20 p.m. Wednesday they received a report of a shooting in the 13200 block of Superior Street. Inside a residence, they found a young man dead of a gunshot. Detectives determined that the two suspects were inside at the time of the shooting.

“For reasons still under investigation, the third male was shot,” police said in a news release Thursday. Police have not released the victim’s identity.

Edwards remained in the house and summoned help, police said.
