SPRINGFIELD — Three of Jennifer Sirons’ daughters hid upstairs as the murder-suicide at Quinlan Court was occurring on Tuesday night, according to a 9-1-1 call the city released Wednesday.
The teenagers were sisters of Andrea Heiser, 21, who with her mother, Jennifer, was shot to death by her stepfather Eric Sirons. He then shot himself to death.
After locking themselves in the upstairs bathroom, one of the three young women dialed 9-1-1 and reported hearing gunfire downstairs and that her stepfather had shot their mother and sister.
Police have yet to release information about what happened in the house prior to the shooting.
This the saddest thing I've seen all week. I don't understand how someone would have the heart to do something like this 😢 https://t.co/kiPCWqSqMk— D. Knight 🚀🌙 (@dknight937) May 17, 2018

I still can’t believe this happened. My heart is so heavy and it just doesn’t feel real. I’m so lucky to have known Andy and her mother who were innocent lives taken by complete filth. I feel no sadness for this coward who murdered my friend. https://t.co/5EOc2Yqcyp— TP (@taylor_priest18) May 17, 2018
