Three People Found Dead In Louisville Home

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Three people were found dead in a home late Sunday in what appeared to be a domestic situation, police said.

A man identified as the alleged shooter was among those found dead, police said.

A 12-year-old boy was shot in the cheek and taken to a local hospital, police said. His condition was not immediately available.

The boy ran to a neighbor's house about 9:45 p.m. EDT and said that his mother and sister had been shot, police Chief Robert White said.

"It appears to be a domestic situation," he said.

Police had been called to the residence once or twice in the past year and a half, he said.

As a precaution, police blocked off streets in the area before entering the home and discovering the bodies.

Police were unclear of the apparent shooter's connection to the victims.

Authorities had not identified the people shot.
