Hunter, 34, gave himself up to authorities Tuesday morning. He was in a home about a block from where the suspicious death of a 25-year-old was reported shortly after midnight Tuesday at 1122 12th St. N.  

Police on Tuesday said both deaths showed “injuries consistent with violence.”

 

The initial call came into regional dispatch as a fire. Emergency responders found the body of a man with violent injuries, WDAY-TV reports.

 

The first homicide was discovered in an apartment building on 12th Avenue North after officers responded to a welfare check. Authorities found a dead man with violent injuries.

Police and SWAT later surrounded another apartment complex on 1st Avenue North to look for Hunter after spotting the suspect vehicle, a black Dodge pickup, on scene.

 

Hunter has a criminal history. He pleaded guilty to reduced assault charges two years ago after stabbing a friend during a threesome when they got into an argument.
