— Topeka police say they haven’t identified any suspects in the deaths of three residents and a shooting that left a woman seriously wounded.

Police said Monday their investigation of the woman’s shooting Sunday afternoon led them to the bodies of two men and a woman at her central Topeka home, blocks away.

They did not say how the three were killed or discuss other details.

The shooting victim was identified as 45-year-old Carla Jean Avery. She remained in critical condition in a Topeka hospital.

Police Maj. Jerry Stanley said Avery’s 43-year-old brother, Eric Christopher Avery, and her ex-husband, 56-year-old Marvin Louis Woods, were found dead in her home.

A 34-year-old woman was also found dead in the home, but her name has not yet been released.
