ACAPULCO, Mexico (AP) — Authorities in southern Mexico say they are investigating the slayings of three women and a 7-year-old girl in a village near the resort city of Acapulco.

Guerrero state prosecutors said the women were shot to death Monday night and that another girl was wounded in the attack inside a home in the village of Paso Limonero.

Prosecutors say in a statement that police were alerted to the killings by a call to the emergency dispatcher. They gave no other details.

A state official who spoke on condition of anonymity because he isn't allowed to speak about the case says the son-in-law of one of the women is suspected in the slayings.
