Philadelphia police are investigating a triple murder in Mayfair.

Three men in their 30s were found dead at a home in the 4600 block of Vista Street. Police say the girlfriend of one the victims made the gruesome discovery late Saturday night.

Police say one victim was found lying face down in the kitchen. The two other victims were found sitting on the couch in the living room. All three were shot in the head execution style, according to authorities.

The girlfriend tells police her boyfriend called her at about 5:00 p.m. Saturday to come over, but when she did no one answered the door. Calls and texts were not returned. She left and came back, but still there was no response.

Around 11:30 p.m. the girlfriend returned and went to the back door of the home. The door was opened and that's when she made the discovery.

Along with the girlfriend, authorities are also questioning the upstairs neighbor.

Police are searching for surveillance cameras in the area.

The suspect or suspects remain on the loose.
