John Hayden says the shooting happened early Friday on the city's north side. Police said the victims were 25-year-old Reeba Moore, and Dominique Lewis and Chanice White, who were both 24. The women were able to get out of the house but were shot inside a car. A man inside the home escaped. Police received a call about gunfire just two minutes after a burglary in progress was reported.
