The victims — ages 68, 47 and 26 — were found unconscious and unresponsive with stab wounds to their necks, and apparent trauma to their bodies, according to an NYPD spokeswoman.  EMS responded to the location and pronounced the three women deceased at the scene. Investigators say the women were related and their identities are pending family notification. The motives behind the triple homicide are still unknown, police said.

Mayor Eric Adams arrived at the crime scene in the afternoon and received a briefing but left without speaking with reporters.

The Office of the Chief Medical Examiner will determine the cause of death for each victim. There are no arrests and the investigation is ongoing.
