Sister of Venus and Serena Williams shot to death

An older sister of tennis stars Venus and Serena Williams has been shot to death in California.

Police say Yetunde Price was killed early this morning in Compton after a "confrontation" with residents.

Los Angeles County sheriff's deputies later surrounded a home, where they believed three suspects were barricaded.

The 31-year-old Price was one of five Williams sisters. She's identified in the WTA Tour's media guide as a registered nurse.
