RICHFIELD, Minn. (AP/WCCO) – Richfield police are investigating the death of a 48-year-old man.

Police say officers responded to a 911 call at about 5 a.m. Sunday, after the caller indicated an assault was in progress.

Lt. Mike Flaherty says officers found the victim with multiple puncture wounds. The victim, identified as Habibi Gessese Tesema, died at the scene.

Tesema died from multiple sharp force injuries and his manner of death has been ruled a homicide, according to the Hennepin County Medical Examiner.

Police say two people were transported to the police department for questioning. Another person was transported to the hospital, but will also be held for questioning.

Police say they are not looking for any additional suspects.

Neighbor Norman Holen says the family is from Ethiopia and moved to Richfield a few years ago. He says the man leaves behind a wife, two children and a sister who lived downstairs.
