CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - Police continue their investigation into the shooting deaths of three people in Charlotte and, according to one media report, are checking whether there is a connection to an earlier South Carolina shooting death.

WBTV reports (http://bit.ly/1Q8MPbO ) police are looking into whether the deaths of the three men found on Friday is connected to a shooting in Lancaster, South Carolina.

The station reports that Antonio Massey, who was shot and killed last month, was a friend of one of the victims found in Charlotte.

Police found 29-year-old Naquivs Benson and 28-year-old Jarvis Benson - who are brothers - and 30-year-old Javarius Deshawn McGee dead of gunshot wounds in a Charlotte home on Friday.

Police say the shootings do not appear random but have not indicated if they are looking for suspects.
