COLLEGE PARK, Ga. — Authorities say three people have been found shot dead inside an apartment in suburban Atlanta.

Police say the bodies were discovered Tuesday evening inside a home at the Lakeview Trails Apartments in Clayton County.

Clayton County Police Deputy Chief Michael Register told reporters at the scene that two men and a woman were killed, and that all three appeared to have died from gunshot wounds.

Register said that officers were first called to the scene for a report of a domestic dispute. Officers left after no one answered the door. A couple of hours later, officers were called back out to the apartment by family members who found the three bodies.

Register says that drug paraphernalia was also found inside the apartment.

It is unclear what led to the slayings.
