Two young Navy officers and the sister of one of them were among the victims of a New Year's Eve shooting in Coronado, according to people briefed on the investigation.

Lt. David Reis, 25, and his sister Karen, 24, were among those killed. The name of the second Navy officer and of the fourth person killed remain undisclosed.

Reis was a pilot in training at Miramar Marine Corps Air Station. His sister was a graduate of UC San Diego.

Their bodies were found in an apartment after neighbors reported hearing gunshots about 2:30 a.m. Sunday.

One of the four bodies was found in the doorway and the other three inside the apartment, according to the San Diego County Sheriff's Department homicide investigators.

No motive for the shooting has been revealed, but homicide Lt. Larry Nesbit said there are no suspects considered at large.
