A fourth person has died at the homeless camp in south Minneapolis.

Family members say 23-year-old Argentina Taylor was found unconscious in the camp on Thursday and later died at Hennepin County Medical Center.  They say she had been struggling with substance abuse.

About 200 people have been living in the homeless encampment near the Little Earth housing project since this past summer. 

Outreach workers say overdoses are a continuing problem at the camp.
