Four people found shot to death in North Carolina

BOSTON (Reuters) - Police found four people shot to death on Saturday in Research Triangle Park off Highway 54 in Durham, North Carolina, local officials said.

Three women were found shot to death inside a car, a green Honda Accord, while a man was found dead just outside the vehicle, said Lt. Stanley Harris, a spokesman for the Durham County sheriff's office.

Police responded early on Saturday to a call that came in just before midnight on Friday, Harris said.

The investigation is ongoing and the bodies are at the medical examiner's office, he said. No other information was currently being released.

Research Triangle Park is a 7,000-acre technology, science and business park, home to more than 170 global companies, according to its website.
