Three people were found dead by "violent means" in a Military Hill condominium in Pullman Saturday night, Mayor Glenn Johnson said.
Johnson said police discovered the bodies of two men and one woman under the ages of 40 at 7 p.m. Saturday in the Statesman condominiums at 1220 NW State St.
Police had recovered a weapon that may be connected to the killings, Johnson said, but didn't specify what kind of weapon.
There was no word on any suspects in the killing, Johnson said, adding murder-suicide was a possibility.
A friend of one of the victims had asked police to do a welfare check at the residence when the victim didn't show up for a planned meeting, Johnson said.
The officers entered the condo through an unlocked back door, he said.
Johnson, also a spokesman for the city, was speaking by cell phone after 11 p.m. Saturday from a command post police had set up near the condo. He said he planned to stay through the night with investigators as they continued to work on the scene.
He said Pullman officers were waiting for a team from the Washington State Patrol crime lab, and few details of how the three were killed were available.
