TOPEKA, Kan. -- Police say three people have been found shot to death inside a home in Topeka, Kan.

Topeka police Lt.

He declined to give any identifying information about the three people who were found dead, including whether they lived in the house.

Gilchrist tells the Topeka Capital-Journal ( ) that police were searching for a person of interest. He says the person isn't believed to be a threat to the general public.

The city of Topeka had recorded only two homicides this year prior to Friday, the newspaper reported.
