Triple shooting leaves sisters dead, man critical

McKEESPORT, Pa. — Two women who are sisters were killed in a triple shooting early Friday morning inside a home in McKeesport.

Police were called about 3:30 a.m. to the home in the 400 block of Gross Street, where the women and a man were found suffering from gunshot wounds.

The women were found in the home’s living room and pronounced dead at the scene, police said. The man, who was found in a bedroom, was taken to a hospital in critical condition.

Jeromie Anderson told Channel 11's Gabriella DeLuca that his mom, Kimberly Lesko, and aunt, Melody Robb, were killed. He said his mom was staying at his aunt's house.


“They didn't deserve this. If you know my family, you know nobody deserves this,” Anderson said.

It is unclear what kind of relationship the sisters had with the man.

“From what I know, nobody would want to harm my mom,” Anderson said.

He is hoping if anyone knows anything or saw anything that they will come forward.

“They were both sweet people. Kimmie was a great mom, a really good mom, a very nice person, would do anything for anyone. Melanie was really sweet. Never caused any problems,’ said neighbor Shawann Kelminsk.

A man told Channel 11 News that he heard several gunshots and is concerned about his cousin.

“Still waiting to find out because my cousin lives in that house, and I'm just worried to see if she's OK,” Robert Harff said.

The family has set up a GoFundMe account for donations towards the victims funeral costs.
