HOUSTON - Houston police homicide detectives are working and combing through the evidence left behind inside an apartment where three people were murdered.

Two women and one man were found shot to death execution style and lying on the floor at The Pines of Northwest Crossing.

Investigators were bagging numerous shotgun shells and bullet casings at the scene in the 7400 block of Hillmont.

Sergeant Christopher Hassig with the Houston Police Department said the crime scene looked like it had been ransacked by the killers who may have driven off in a silver vehicle.

Eyewitnesses at the apartment complex reported hearing a barrage of gunfire and then seeing three black men running from the apartment in question.

Witnesses told police they believed the apartment was used as a location for prostitution.

Investigators are now searching for any information on the wanted men.

Anyone with any information on this shooting is asked to call the Houston Police Department 713-308-3600 or Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
