HARRISBURG, Pa. - Harrisburg Police have identified the two victims who were killed Thursday night.

Natasha Harner, 24, and Kaliah Dearing, 16, who were sisters, were found deceased in their home of apparent gunshot wounds.

The shooting occurred around 5 p.m. Thursday evening on the 2200 block of Logan Street, which is near 3rd and Maclay streets.

Community members held a private vigil for the young women Friday night, declining all requests for on-camera interviews.

This GoFundMe page has been established for Dearing's final expenses, and this GoFundMe page has been established in Harner's memory.

ORIGINAL: Officers responded to the home after reports of someone having a heart problem, but when they arrived, they discovered that two individuals were deceased from apparent gunshot wounds.

"Initially the neighborhood was canvassed, and we tried to establish some witnesses and things like that," said Lt. Milo Hooper of the Harrisburg Police Department. "Once we get some witnesses, the detectives will do some follow-up on that and wherever that takes you, that's where you'll go, wherever it leads you, that's where you go."

Coroner's officials removed the victims from the home as officers continued their investigation. Police have been investigating several leads in the case and trying to talk to neighbors about what happened.

Many community members FOX43 spoke to said they were not home at the time of the shooting and were not able to witness anything that would help with the police investigation. One man was taken from the scene around 9:30 p.m. by police for additional questioning.
