Police in Germany are investigating the deaths of three people whose bodies were found shot with crossbow bolts in a hotel room in Bavaria.
Hotel employees found the three bodies and two crossbows in the room on Saturday, according to German news agency DPA.
Police said the victims were a 53-year-old man and two women aged 33 and 30 – all German citizens.
Investigators are trying to determine the relationship between the three people. According to local newspaper Passaauer Neue Presse, a police spokesperson said the women were not the man’s daughters.
Local media reports said the victims had booked a triple room on Friday for a three-day stay in the town of Passau.
It is not currently clear what happened inside the hotel room or how the three died.
A vehicle has been seized by detectives.
DPA has reported that a post-mortem has been ordered and will be carried out early next week.
