SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) — Police in Spokane, Wash., say a woman and two children have been found dead in a triple homicide.

Capt. Frank Scalise called the deaths "a potential domestic violence" situation. The bodies were found Friday night when police responded to a 911 report of a dead body in a home.

The Spokesman-Review reports that a SWAT team and a helicopter are combing a wide swath of north Spokane in the search for a suspect.

Officer Jennifer DeRuwe (De-ROO) says police are working to track down leads.

The victims were not immediately identified. Officers did not release details of how the three died.
