family member of one of the victims called 911 after discovering the bodies,
the department’s Facebook page says. That family member had gone to the
apartment to check on a loved one. When officers arrived, they discovered the
bodies of the three victims, each suffering from apparent gunshot wounds. They
were pronounced dead on the scene.
Preliminarily, there do not appear to be any prior calls for service at Ola’s apartment on Marlboro Pike.
