Columbus Police continue their investigation into the stabbing deaths of a mother and her 2 daughters on the north side.

Neighbors reported a fight early this morning inside of an apartment on Atlantic Avenue near Busch Blvd.  Officers arrived and found the 3 victims; 32 year old Erveena Hammonds, 10 year old Anaesia Green and 7 year old Breya Hammonds.

Sgt. Rich Weiner says it's believed that the mom's ex-boyfriend stabbed the victims and before leaving a current boyfriend arrived and confronted the first man.

"Right now, no charges have been filed.  We are still working the scene, an extensive scene, so it's taking longer to process." said Weiner.

Both men were taken to a hospital with injuries.  The name of the suspect could be released later today if charges are filed.
