Two of the victims were identified as Brenda Whiteman, 43, and her son Zachery Whiteman, 20. Their bodies were discovered in a front second-story apartment.

The identity of a third victim, believed to be a man in his 60s who resided in the building, was not disclosed, pending notification of next of kin. He was located by firefighters in a rear apartment.
