A 2-year-old child was found Tuesday afternoon in a closet at a triple-homicide scene in Banning, police said.

Initial evidence indicated that two of the bodies were those of the child's parents, the Banning Police Department said.

The home was near North Phillips and East Williams streets, where police had set up a command post Thursday afternoon as investigators gathered evidence and interviewed people.

The condition of the child was not known. There were no immediate details on the third slaying victim.
