ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - Detectives are investigating a triple slaying in an Orlando neighborhood.

Police spokeswoman Michelle Guido says three men were killed late Wednesday.

Police officers arriving in the neighborhood south of downtown after receiving a call of shots fired found a 34-year-old man with a gunshot wound. One man was lying in the street. He was taken to a hospital where he was pronounced dead. His name hasn't been released.

Two other men were found inside a home. They were identified as 40-year-old Rodedrick Smith and 36-year-old Joseph Slade.

Guido says the home apparently was targeted.

No further details were immediately available.
