INDIANAPOLIS — Three people were found shot to death inside of an apartment complex on Indianapolis' northwest side Friday afternoon.

Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department officers were called to the 5300 block of Holly Springs Drive W just after 1:30 p.m. for a report of multiple people shot. Arriving officers located three adults inside the building suffering from apparent gunshot wounds. All three were pronounced dead at the scene.

The Marion County Coroner's Office has identified Kris Martin, 26, as the third person who died in the incident.

The Coroner's Office ruled the deaths of Summer and Vanel Stamps homicides. Martin died by suicide, the Coroner's Office said.

The circumstances surrounding the shooting have not yet been released.
