A man living at an experimental homeless shelter opened last month by the city and Red Lake Nation died there Sunday night from an apparent opioid overdose.

Todd "Julio" Weldon, 47, had been living at the homeless encampment along Franklin and Hiawatha avenues before moving to the nearby "navigation center" shelter, said his fiancee Teresa Graves, who confirmed Weldon's death. She described him as happy, caring and giving.
