Ryan Lochte, 3 other U.S. swimmers robbed at gunpoint in Rio, NBC News reports

American swimmer Ryan Lochte confirmed to NBC News that he and three other swimmers were robbed at gunpoint Saturday night in Rio.

The U.S. Olympic Committee has not yet commented on the NBC News report.

USA Today and Fox Sports Australia both said the 32-year-old Lochte was robbed and had his wallet stolen early Sunday while socializing the night after Olympic swimming events ended. An IOC spokesman denied the claim at first before hedging, acknowledging he didn't directly know the specifics of the situation.

The USOC said it was gathering more information. IOC spokesman Mark Adams said the USOC denied the story at first but it looks like that denial "is not correct."

Lochte's mother, Ileana Lochte, and his agent did not immediately return phone calls and text messages from The Associated Press.

Rio organizers spokesman Mario Andrada said he has been briefed on an "issue" involving the swimmer, but could not say if he was held at gunpoint.

Lochte swam in two events at the Rio Games, winning gold in the 4x200-meter freestyle relay.
