CORTEZ, Colo. – Authorities say three people have been found dead with gunshot wounds in a trailer in southwest Colorado.

Montezuma County Sheriff Gerald Wallace says the bodies were discovered Thursday outside Cortez, about 250 miles southwest of Denver.

The victims’ names haven’t been released.

Investigators say they don’t believe a gunman is at large, but they haven’t disclosed any details. The coroner hasn’t determined whether the gunshot wounds were the cause of death.

Wallace says another person who lived on the property found the bodies and called 911.

The Colorado Bureau of Investigation and the Sheriff’s Department are investigating.
