Three hours later and about 5 miles to the north of the first shooting in the city’s east side, three men were shot in an apartment.

One of the men died of gunshot wounds to his chest and side.

Preliminary investigation indicates that the three men may have been arguing and exchanged gunfire.

Three children were in the home but weren’t hurt.
