An unidentified 27-year-old man, who was shot Tuesday at an inner city triplex, is Edmonton's third homicide of 2008.

The shooting occurred just before 11 a.m. MT in a house at 112 Avenue and 90 Street in north central Edmonton, police said.

A 27-year-old man was shot and killed at this house at 112 Avenue and 90 Street Tuesday.
(CBC) When officers arrived, they found a man inside with a gunshot wound to the chest. Paramedics treated him and took him to hospital where he died, police said.

Investigators are looking for three or four suspects who fled the scene wearing masks. They are also interviewing witnesses who were inside the residence at the time. Police won't say how many people were in the house when the shooting occurred, or provide any more information about the victim.

Neighbour Roger DeJordy told CBC News the house where the shooting happened is rented to people who come and go at "all hours of the day and night."

The neighbourhood is known for prostitutes and drug houses, he said. Although in the past few years, more owners have been fixing up their homes and the problems have decreased, DeJordy said.
