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.
