Two separate news stories citing anonymous sources this afternoon are indicating possible motives in the murder of three men Thursday night in West Hollywood.

The LA Times says the deaths may be a result of a "robbery confrontation" and WeHo News says it could be related to medical marijuana. Apparently, one of the victims was a medical marijuana vendor, which is a go-between between legal grows and dispensaries.

A 911 call alerted Sheriff's Deputies of the shooting at 612 N. Kings Road. First responders entered the apartment to find three deceased victims, who were identified earlier today.
