Police say a man, son and grandson were found shot to death at an apartment in an upscale area of Manhattan along with another body in a backyard. Police say a 49-year-old woman related to the victims was wounded Thursday in the confrontation on the Upper West Side.

No arrests have been made. Police spokesman Paul Browne says the three men were shot to death in the third-floor apartment. Police say the fourth man was found dead from a fall from the apartment's fire escape.

Browne says police are investigating whether the man was the gunman and was trying to flee the scene.
