Authorities say the men were stopped by the North Carolina Highway Patrol after their SUV with Virginia license plates matched the description of a vehicle sought by Gwinnett County police. Gwinnett County detectives then traveled to the Charlotte area to question them Thursday.
Gwinnett police Cpl. Edwin Ritter tells The Atlanta Journal-Constitution the men “are not our homicide suspects.”
Gwinnett police Cpl. Jake Smith says three men were found killed Wednesday night in a duplex in the suburban Atlanta city of Lawrenceville.
Police have not revealed a possible motive for the killings.
