FREDONIA, Kansas (AP) – Authorities have identified three people who were found fatally shot outside a southeast Kansas home.

Wilson County Sheriff Pete Figgins says deputies found a married couple and the woman’s son dead Monday night near Fredonia. The discovery was made after another relative asked the deputies to check on their welfare.

Figgins identified the people killed as Eva and Russell Blevins, who were both 43, and 19-year-old Jacob Traylor. Figgins says deputies are not looking for any suspects.

The Kansas Bureau of Investigation is assisting with the investigation, and autopsies have been completed. Figgins says he can’t immediately provide any details about the identity of the shooter pending further analysis of forensic evidence.

Fredonia is a town of about 2,400 residents located about 150 miles southwest of Kansas City.
