LAWRENCEVILLE, Ga. (AP) _ Police in metro Atlanta say they were questioning three men in North Carolina as they investigate a triple homicide, but they do not consider them suspects in the killings.

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.
