Victoria Manisco, 26, was the first person police say was shot Tuesday night on her porch. She was found dead Wednesday.
Terri Bankhead, 27, and her daughter Da'Nilya Edwards, 8, were found dead in their home about 8 miles away on Wednesday, according to NBC News.
Bankhead’s mother found the two dead and tied to a bed after visiting the house to check on them. She became worried after she didn't hear from her daughter.
"It's very hard to believe. I knew Terri a long time," Bankhead's cousin, Shagreggria Brown, told a local NBC station. "We all called her 'Shug,' because she was sweet as sugar."
