(CNN)Albuquerque police and the FBI are investigating three recent murders of Muslim men for "possible ties to the same offender," according to Albuquerque police.

Two members of the same mosque, Muhammed Afzaal Hussain, 27, and Aftab Hussein, 41, both from Pakistan, were murdered in southeast Albuquerque in the past week, police said in a news release.
Detectives are now trying to determine whether any connections exist between those killings and the November 2021 murder of another Muslim man, Mohammad Ahmadi, who was of South Asian descent."While we are still sifting through all the evidence to look for more connections, it is deeply troubling that these three men were Muslim and of similar descent," said Kyle Hartsock, deputy commander of the police department's Criminal Investigations Division.Hartsock asked for the public's help in identifying "the shooter or shooters," saying the victims in all three cases were "ambushed with no warning, fired on and killed."Investigators met with leaders of the Islamic Center of New Mexico on Thursday morning.Read More"I want to reassure our friends in the Muslim community that we are making these crimes a top priority for the department," APD Chief Harold Medina said.CNN has reached out to the Islamic Center of New Mexico for comment.FBI Special Agent in Charge Raul Bujanda also pledged the FBI's help in locating the "person or persons" responsible. "We offer our condolences to the relatives of the victims and we will not rest until justice is done," he said.The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) on Friday announced a $5,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible for the deaths of the three men, according to a release from CAIR. "If a bias-motive is determined, state and federal authorities should apply appropriate hate crime charges," CAIR National Executive Director Nihad Awad said.

Pennsylvania teen dies after getting pulled into wood chipper when his clothing got caught while working his summer job

A teenager in Pennsylvania died after getting his clothes caught into a wood chipper while he was working his summer job on Tuesday. 

Isiah M. Bedocs, 17, of Cosplay, was working for a tree removal service when the fatal incident happened on the 3700 block of Excelsior Road in North Whitehall Township around 1.30pm. 

The teen was rushed by helicopter to Lehigh Valley Hospital with 'multiple traumatic injuries,' according to Pennsylvania State Police. 

He was officially pronounced dead a little over an hour after the incident at 2:55pm. 

Coroner Daniel A. Buglio confirmed on Wednesday that Bedocs' death was marked off as an accident.

The teen's official cause of death has yet to be released, as officials and relatives await autopsy results.

Bedocs was an incoming senior at Lehigh Career and Technical Institute, where he had signed up for the school's auto technology program.

In a statement released on Thursday, the institute located in Schnecksville, said it was 'in mourning' over the student's death.

'Our hearts are with his family members and friends as they grapple with this unimaginable tragedy,' the school's statement read.

'Counselors will be provided to students who may be struggling in the wake of the event,' it added, offering mental health services to those in need. 

A female resident in the area where the incident struck described the series of events as 'very unsettling.' 

'My heart just goes out to that poor family, just what that young man went through,' the neighbor who wished to remain anonymous, said. 

Authorities found the teen with 'multiple traumatic injuries,' according to Pennsylvania State Police, before taking him to Lehigh Valley Hospital by helicopter

'What a horrible thing to have happen to someone so young,' she added. 

The woman further told WPVI-TV that he she had seen other personnel work on the site for several days.   

The homeowner who hired the tree cutting service initially wanted 10 trees on his property to be removed, the local news outlet reported. 

It remains unclear if he is liable for the teen's death. As of Thursday, a Go Fund Me Page for Bedocs had raised $3,310 out of a $5,000 goal to pay for funeral expenses.

The Pennsylvania State Police and the coroner’s office are the law enforcement agencies leading the investigation, with help from the Bethlehem Criminal Investigation Unit and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA).
