GENTILLY, LA (WWL-TV) -

Three people, including a police dispatcher, were found shot to death in the garage of a New Orleans area home late Wednesday night.

According to WWL-TV, the victims were identified as a 41-year-old woman who works for the New Orleans Police Department as a dispatcher, her 20-year-old daughter and 18-year-old son.

A relative identified them as Christine George and her two children, Trisa and Leonard George. Police said Christine George has been a complaint operator since 2009.

WWL-TV also reported NOPD named Shawn Peterson as a person of interest in the triple homicide. Police said he has turned himself in to them.

A spokesman for NOPD said the three victims were found in the home in Gentilly after police received a call just after 11 p.m. He added the victims had multiple gunshot wounds.

This is the second tragedy to hit the NOPD involving a dispatcher, in just a matter of days. Communications dispatcher Paulette Brown is hospitalized on life support, critically injured by a suspected drunk driver, who hit her Saturday night.
