KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Authorities have released the names of two Kansas City women killed in a triple shooting inside a home in the eastern part of the city.

The Kansas City Star reports that police identified them Sunday as 25-year-old Yessenia Ahumada and 30-year-old Jennifer Zimmerman. Family members told police that Zimmerman may have recently changed her last name to Portillo.

One of the slain women managed to call police Friday morning after she was shot. But police say she died from her injuries at a hospital. The other woman and a man were pronounced dead at the scene. The man’s name hasn’t yet been released. Police say detectives are trying to contact relatives outside the U.S.
