DETROIT (WJBK) -

A victim's relatives arrived at the house on Coyle on Detroit's west side where three young lives were lost.  A man and two women were shot and killed.  Two children in the house saw their mothers gunned down.

India Coleman's loved ones were at the home to pick up a stroller and supplies for her one-year-old.  They can't believe she is gone.

"She's a very good girl, and we miss her dearly," said Coleman's aunt Alesia Myers.

Also killed were Curtis Clements and Lauren Trotty.  Her five-year-old told police who is allegedly responsible, and Thursday night two men were taken into custody.  One of them was Trotty's ex-boyfriend.

Coleman's uncle, who helped raise her, is overwhelmed by what has happened.

"I got sick.  I was hurt.  I helped raise her," said Michael Reed.

A relative discovered the victims' bodies inside the home Thursday morning along with the one- and five-year-olds.  The children had spent the night with the bloody corpses.  Someone had called 911 the night before, but police have said they were given the wrong address and didn't find the crime scene Wednesday night.

Neighbors have said they all heard the gunshots, but didn't know exactly where they were coming from and never could have imagined the tragedy that was unfolding.

"It was just boom, boom," said neighbor Sylvia Hubbard.  "Everyone pretty much heard it, but... prior we had heard like booming noises, too.  So we didn't count it as anything as tragic as that."

"They didn't bother anybody.  They went about their business.  So no one suspected anything," she added.
