Three men shot and killed sitting outside Garland apartments

The Garland Police Department is investigating a multiple victim homicide that occurred late last night at an apartment complex in the 1300 block of W. Kingsley Road.

At around 11:00pm last night, Garland police were called to a shooting at the apartment complex. When officers arrived, they found three men suffering from multiple gunshot wounds. All three victims were pronounced deceased on the scene by Garland paramedics.

Detectives say the three men were sitting outside of the apartments when two armed men fired several shots at them, hitting all three multiple times. The suspects later took off and were last seen driving a vehicle through a nearby neighborhood near the apartment complex. If anyone has video surveillance in the immediate area, they are asked to check their cameras between the hours of 10:45 pm and 11:45 pm.

The motive for the killing is under investigation; however, detectives believe the suspects and the victims may have communicated with one another prior to the shooting.
