A 48-year-old man and his 16-year-old twin daughters were found shot to death on Friday, inside their St. Charles, Illinois, condo.
WGN reports that Randall Coffland and sisters, Brittany and Tiffany Coffland, didn’t survive the shooting. Their mother, Anjum Coffland, was shot and severely injured, but sustained non-life threatening injuries. She’s recovering at the Delnor Hospital in Geneva. Investigators indicated that the incident appeared to happen after a domestic dispute.

It’s still unclear who fired the shots or how the ordeal started, but Randall and Ajnum were married, yet living in separate homes. Officers stated that there wasn’t any kind of physical altercation prior to the shootings.
Neighbor Tammy Hartje called 911 a little after 5 p.m., after hearing gunshots going off inside the condo. Shortly before police arrived, she heard screams and noticed that the condo’s front door was open.
“When I walked across the street I had heard screams. I looked up and I noticed in that apartment they had the door open and I was thinking that’s weird because it was so cold outside.”

The twins attended St. Charles East High School. Fellow students recalled how friendly both girls were. St. Charles East cheerleader, Tatianna Lerario, saw the twins at school on Friday and remembered how everyone at the school loved them.
“We just admired them every single day. They were such amazing people. They had such innocent souls. They did not deserve anything like this to happen to them at all. You see them and they just instantly put a smile on your face. They made you feel like everything is good.”
