JACKSON, Miss. (AP) - Authorities say all three people aboard a plane were killed when it crashed into a house in a Jackson, Miss., neighborhood.

The Piper PA-32 single-engine plane went down Tuesday evening in a neighborhood of modest, single-family homes near Hawkins Field Airport.

Hinds County Coroner Sharon Grisham-Stewart confirmed three people died. She said dental records or DNA would be needed to confirm their identities.

The weather in Jackson is partly cloudy in the 40s.
