Victims from triple shooting identified

Rochester, N.Y. A family member has confirmed the identities of two of the people killed in the triple shooting on Chili Avenue Monday.

The stepfather of one of the victims said Jermeliah and Jacquelyn Simmons were found dead at 809 Chili Ave.

Investigators said they received a call at 9:35 a.m., after someone entered the home to check on the residents there.

When the witnesses arrived, they said they found what they believe was one body.

Police who arrived at the scene moments later found two additional bodies.

Extended family of the two women said they were cousins, and both were young mothers.

Their children were not home at the time of the shooting, but one of the kids was with the witnesses who discovered the scene.

The family member said both women were active in church, and Jermeliah was preparing for her youngest child's christening.

They do know how the women knew the man who was killed.

There are no suspects in custody at this time.
