Early reports suggested all three had been shot, however, further investigation indicates the mother, Suzanne Taylor, had suffered a knife wound.

Senior police sources said he was armed with a pistol and had waved it at officers several times during the siege.

The North Royalton Police Department identified two sisters as 18-year-old Kylie Pifer and 21-year-old Taylor Pifer.

A section of Valley Forge Drive was blocked off by police, but a crowd of about two-dozen onlookers gathered across the street around midnight to watch the situation. They found stab wounds in one of the victims but were not able to determine a likely cause of death for the other two women. When police arrived a woman was seen emerging from the house. He said he called Taylor's boyfriend, Scott Plymale, who then called 911.

Investigators believe the killings were specific - not random - but they do not have a suspect and they have not made an arrest, Loeding says, describing the case as "tragic".

The 21-year-old wrote in the bio on her Facebook page: 'Life's too short to sit and wait for luck to come your way'.

Sonya Pifer told Cleveland19that the girls' father has been estranged from his daughters since they became adults.

North Royalton police and the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation are investigating.

"Taylor was majoring in fashion design, while Kylie was involved in theater and was majoring in forensic science", the stepmother told WGHP-TV.
