4-year-old girl found in room full of shooting victims

GARY, IN (AP) - Police in Gary have found a 4-year-old girl lying on a couch in a room where three people had been fatally shot.

Lt. Samuel Roberts says police don't know the motive or have any suspects in the shootings Thursday night at a Gary home. He says drugs were found in the house.

The bodies were found after a man who had been shot fled the home and flagged down a passing police car. Roberts says the man and another shooting victim were taken to hospitals. Their conditions were not available.

Roberts said investigators don't know why the girl's life was spared. She was placed in protective custody.

Police are not releasing information about how many shots were fired.
