Three men were found dead with gunshot and knife wounds and a fourth one with a large cut on his neck inside an apartment building, apparently under the influence of ‘magic mushrooms.’
Emergency services rushed to an apartment in Roseville, Minnesota, after reports of three people unresponsive and a man with a deep cut on his neck.
Police officers arrived to find three men deceased and a fourth man with a “deep laceration” to his neck, it was reported. Crews were dispatched at around 2:30 a.m. (local time) today.
The three dead bodies had knife and gunshot wounds, police said. Further information on the circumstances under which the people were found unresponsive and how the injury of the man occurred is not yet available. The fourth man found with the cut to his throat was provided aid by police officers before being rushed to a hospital where he remains in critical condition.
Police said there was no threat to the public. Detectives remain on the scene to investigate the case alongside officers from the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension. The people involved had reportedly taken ‘magic mushrooms’, although this has not been confirmed by police.
The Roseville Police Department said in a statement: “On September 23, 2023, at 2:24 AM, Roseville Officers were dispatched to the 1600 block of Eldridge Avenue on a welfare check. Upon arrival, officers located one adult male with a laceration to his throat. While providing aid, officers located three additional adult males, all of whom were deceased from apparent knife and gunshot wounds.
“The initial male located by police was transported to the hospital where he remains in critical condition. At this time, there is no reason to believe there is an ongoing safety risk to the public. The Roseville Police Department is partnering with the Minnesota Bureau of Apprehension and will release additional details as they become available.
