One man was killed in a triple shooting, the other fatally stabbed in an apparent domestic incident.

Two people were killed in separate incidents in Minneapolis Thursday, marking the eighth and ninth homicides in the city this year

A man was killed in a triple shooting around 6:45 p.m. in the area of 2300 block of 17th Avenue South, police said in a news release.

When police arrived at the scene, officers found three men who had been shot: one was dead, one was in critical condition and the third had non-life-threatening injuries.

The two surviving victims were brought to the hospital.

The Hennepin County Medical Examiner will release the victim's name and cause of death in the days to come.

Man killed in stabbing

A few hours early, around 4 p.m., police responded to a 911 call about a possible stabbing in the area of 2700 block of Aldrich Avenue South. 

Officers went into a home and found a man who was dead from apparent stab wounds, a release says

The suspect fled on foot prior to the police getting there, with the MPD noting its preliminary investigation points to this being a domestic-related situation with no ongoing threat to public safety. 

The medical examiner will release the man's identity in the coming days.
