3 fatally shot in Memphis; suspect turns self in

Police say a man fatally shot his girlfriend and her parents in the family's home in south Memphis, then turned himself in to authorities with a 4-year-old in tow.

Memphis police spokeswoman Karen Rudolph says officers were called to the home at 5:45 a.m. Thursday. They found a 23-year-old woman and a 56-year-old man shot dead. Rudolph said a wounded 46-year-old woman died later at a hospital.

Rudolph says the shooter left the home but then surrendered to authorities about two hours later. He showed up at a police station with his and his girlfriend's 4-year-old daughter. She had been in the home but was not hurt.

Police did not release a motive.
