OVER THE RHINE, OH (FOX19) - A teenage mother and two children were shot to death in Over the Rhine.

Police got a call just after midnight about three people dead inside of an apartment in the 400 block of East 13th St.

Police arrived to find Noelle Washington, 19, her 9-month-old son, Anthony Jones, and Sharailyn Wright, age 3. Police say Washington was babysitting Wright.

Investigators do not know what the motive was or why these three were targeted. They are looking into whether or not the shooter had to force their way inside.

A homicide detective on the scene says any death is tragic, but this one is completely senseless.

"This is not drug dealers shooting drug dealers," said Sgt. Joseph Briede with Cincinnati Police. "This is a 9 month old, a 3 year old and a 19 year old mom all killed inside an apartment. I would hope someone would step up to the plate and do what's right."

Investigators say they have interviewed eight to 10 people, including the person who found the victims, friends and neighbors. A suspect has not been named .

If you know anything, call Crimestoppers at 513-352-3040.
