One person is dead and two others were injured in a shooting Tuesday night.

It happened near 22nd Avenue and 29th Street North.

When police arrived, they found one victim dead at the scene, and a second victim was taken to the hospital with serious injuries. A third victim with minor injuries ran home, and then went to the hospital.

The man who was killed has been identified as 26-year-old Dexter Jermane Gardner. The second is Thomas Causei, police said, and the third is Bertran Sampson.
