3 killed in apparent home invasion in Thomasville


THOMASVILLE, NC (AP) -- Authorities are investigating what appears to be a home invasion that resulted in the shooting deaths of three people in Thomasville.

Thomasville police Capt. Darren Smith says neighbors checked on the residents after hearing a loud bang Thursday afternoon and found them dead. Smith says police found signs of forced entry.

Authorities have not determined if anything is missing from the house, but say the house wasn't ransacked. They haven't determined a motive for the shooting.

Police haven't released the names of the victims.
