Police have identified the two women found shot to death to be Iquira Tate, 21, and Brittany Tate, 24.

UPDATE:

Little Rock Police say the two-year-old has been released from the hospital after being shot early Saturday.

“I was shocked,” Dorothy Harrison, who lives nearby said. “You wouldn’t think it would happen to us, or this close.”

Police say they responded to a distress call and that’s where they found two women shot and killed and a two-year-old shot.

“It is sad, it’s a sad situation,” next-door neighbor Janice Hyde said.

According to police, it was an isolated incident and all three victims lived in the house.

“They were very nice young ladies, they were always very respectable towards me,” Hyde said.

Meanwhile, Hyde became emotional just talking about the shooting. She said not much has happened in the last 20 years she lived on this street.

“Most people consider this on the other side of 630,” Hyde said. “It’s a lot of bad stuff that go on but I don’t have any problems over here.”

Police still have no released the names of the victims or any information on the suspect.

UPDATE:

Police have identified that the two victims who were killed were women, while the third victim was a two-year-old, who is currently in the hospital with injuries.

Police say they have a suspect in mind but are still investigating the situation.
