HOUSTON (AP) — Houston police say a man and two women have been found shot to death at an apartment and investigators are seeking three men seen fleeing the home.

Police on Monday did not immediately release names of the victims who were slain during the apparent home invasion.

Sgt. Christopher Hassig says it appears the victims were shot Sunday night and the apartment was ransacked.

Police say the front door of the apartment had been kicked in. Investigators are trying to determine whether anything was stolen.

Houston police say witnesses told investigators that the apartment in northwest Houston was possibly a location for prostitution.
