BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) — Police in Alabama say they have arrested three suspects in the deaths of five people whose bodies were found by officers investigating a possible robbery.

Birmingham police say in a statement that investigators arrested the three Sunday night, less than a day after the five were found shot to death in the rental home.

Police say the suspects have been interviewed by detectives and are being held in the Birmingham City Jail as the investigation continues. Police have not said what charges are being filed.

Authorities haven't released the names of the three people who were taken into custody or the five people who were killed.
