SAVANNAH, Ga. (AP) - Police say a shooting involving gang members left three people dead inside a home in Savannah.

Savannah-Chatham County police said officers responded to a home about 1:15 a.m. Monday. Inside they found three bodies. Police identified the victims as 31-year-old Courtney German, 24-year-old William Mullins and 18-year-old Shayla Curtis.

Savannah-Chatham County police Lt. Racine Chaney said at a news conference that "the homicide involved gang members." But he declined to go into further details, saying that could jeopardize a "very fluid investigation."

Chaney said a person of interest had been arrested on unrelated charges in nearby Jasper County, South Carolina, but had not been charged with the Savannah slayings.


This story corrects the time bodies found to 1:15 a.m. Monday, not 2 p.m.
