(Reading) -- Authorities say four people have been shot to death inside a row home in Reading.

City police responded to the scene on South 3rd Street around 7:00 p.m. yesterday.

All of the victims were males.

Three were pronounced dead at the scene and the fourth died in the trauma unit at Reading Hospital.

Their names have not been released.

Investigators have not released any information on possible suspects or motive.

People gathered in front of the house last night, crying and embracing each other as police investigated.

Berks County District Attorney John Adams says more information will be released at a 1:00 p.m. press conference.
