Three people were found dead at a Georgia home Saturday, prompting police to launch a manhunt for the killer, WSB-TV reports.
Police officers responding to reports of a shooting arrived at a residence in Lawrenceville, Georgia, shortly before 3:30 p.m. Saturday afternoon and found one of the victims in a cul-de-sac suffering from a gunshot wound. He was rushed to a local hospital but later died.
Officers then entered the home, which had its garage door open, and discovered two dead men. A helicopter and K-9 unit scoured the vicinity of the home on Saturday night in search of the suspected killer.
Authorities have not released a description of the suspect and were exploring potential motives for the slayings, according to a press release from the Gwinnett County Police Department.

On Saturday evening, the Gwinnett County Police Department tweeted a photo of the scene, showing a cul-de-sac surrounded by several two-story homes. Police tape appeared to encircle the entire end of the street as investigators worked.
Lawrenceville is about 30 miles northeast of Atlanta. WSB-TV described the area where the triple homicide occurred as a “quiet neighborhood.”
“We don’t know if this is gang-related, drug-related or domestic-related, and we don’t have a good description of the suspect,” Gwinnett County Police Cpl. Michele Pihera told WSB-TV.
Investigators are interviewing neighbors and seeking footage from surveillance cameras that may have recorded what happened or the suspect fleeing.
