LACEY, Wash. (AP) - The Thurston County Coroner’s Office has released the names of three people who were fatally shot and found in a travel trailer at a home in western Washington.

In a news release issued Thursday, Coroner Gary Warnock identified the victims as: 36-year-old Gerald M. Berkey of Elma, 28-year-old Jackson L. Edens of Olympia and 31-year-old Terron R. McGrath of Olympia. Warnock wrote that all three died of gunshot wounds.

Officials say a fourth victim, who called 911 Wednesday and was found collapsed in the driveway, is still recovering from a gunshot wound in the hospital following surgery. Police do not have a suspect in the shooting at this time.

Thurston County Chief Deputy Dave Pearsall said investigators found half a pound of methamphetamine, heroin, thousands of dollars in cash and about half a dozen firearms in the trailer near Lacey, Washington.
