PITTSBURGH —

The bodies of two sisters were found in an East Liberty home Friday.  Police said they were shot, but it’s not clear when.

Police said co-workers of one of the women called police when the woman didn’t show up for work.

Channel 11 has learned that one of the women killed was Dr. Sarah Wolfe.  She was a pediatrician and child psychiatrist at Western Psych.

“We unlocked the door, made an entry to the house and saw a body down the steps,” said Dan Herrmann of Pittsburgh police.

The sisters’ bodies were found next to each other in the basement of the Chislett Street home, police said.

Neighbors are shocked.

“It’s a nice neighborhood, and for something like this to happen, it’s a concern,” said a neighbor.

UPMC released a statement saying in part that its staff is mourning the loss of Wolfe.   It also said that Wolfe was compassionate, warm and praised by patients, staff and colleagues.

Police are investigating a motive and searching for a suspect.

Police searched for a 2011 Ford Fiesta with the Pennsylvania plate HSD-7462. The vehicle was found overnight Friday.
