Police found three Britons shot dead in a house near the resort city of Malaga in southern Spain on Wednesday, officials said.

A source in the Civil Guard told AFP that a man and two females were found in a house in the town of Mijas, southwest of Malaga, and identified them as British.

"An initial hypothesis is being considered that it is a family and that the man killed the woman and then his daughter and then committed suicide," said the source, who asked not to be named.

"The results of the investigation are being awaited for that to be confirmed."

Press photographs published online showed officials bringing what appeared to be a body on a stretcher out from within the yellow walls of a villa in Mijas.
