Silver had been shot in the face and torso, and Tedlie, of the Lower East Side, had been shot in the torso. Ruiz, of Glen Ridge, N.J., was found shot in a chair in the apartment, police said.
The bodies were found in the upscale building shortly after 5 p.m. Saturday, with a semiautomatic gun nearby, police Sgt. Kevin Hayes said. It was unclear when they had been shot. A call to the medical examiner on Sunday was not immediately returned.
A neighbor, William Glenn, said his wife heard popping noises Friday night but thought nothing of it.
A visibly distraught woman arrived at the building and left with police around 8 p.m. Saturday; a man who arrived with her said they were relatives when reporters asked.
Detectives were talking to residents of the West 93rd Street building, a 10-story co-op with a doorman and decorative wrought-iron doors on a quiet residential block. A man answering the phone at the building office declined to comment and hung up.
"It's a pretty good block," said Alice Cruz, a resident of the area who was among a small crowd of onlookers who gathered outside the building Saturday night. "You get it (violence) even in the best neighborhoods."
