ATLANTA (AP) — Police say three people were killed and two others were wounded in an early morning shooting in Atlanta.

Atlanta police Sgt. Greg Lyon said gunfire erupted early Saturday at a home in southeast Atlanta. Three men died from gunshot wounds, and two other victims were taken to Grady Memorial Hospital. Lyon told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution that the two were in stable condition.

Atlanta police Capt. Paul Guerrucci told WSB-TV that investigators were uncertain of the motive, but they do not think the shooting was a random act.

Guerrucci said investigators think all of the people knew each other and that the crime didn't appear to be a random home invasion.
