Thomasville -- The SBI, Thomasville Police, the Davidson County Sheriff's Office and the Texas Rangers arrested 3 people they think are  connected with a  triple homicide, earlier this week,  in Thomasville.  

Investigators  think they went to a home on Rotary Lane as part of a home invasion. Officers would not elaborate on what led to the shooting deaths, but did say the crime is drug related.

According to investigators, a tip led them to the suspects.

Carl Kennedy and Leigh Williams of Thomasville were arrested just before noon Saturday in Davidson County. They're both in the Davidson County jail charged with 3 counts of 1st Degree Murder.

The third suspect, David Manning was taken into custody in Amarillo, Texas. Manning lives in Thomasville but was working in Texas. The Texas Rangers, equivalent of our SBI, arrested him Saturday around 5:30pm Eastern time. Manning also will be charged with 3 counts of 1st Degree Murder.

Thomasville Police have schedule a news conference for Monday morning at 10:00 a.m. to discuss the latest developments. 

Police have identified the victims as Sharon Rushing, 61, Angela Dawn Soles, 43, and Gary Lynn Seward, 52. Soles is Rushing's daughter and Seward is Rushing's friend. All three people lived in the Rotary Lane house.

Thomasville Police Captain Darren Smith said two victims were found in a bedroom and one in the common area of the house, all were shot to death, according to police.
