JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Family members of two young women killed during a gun rampage Thursday night are speaking out about the loss of their loved ones.

"It still hasn't triggered yet," said Alexis Brown.

Brown said the events of the past few hours played out like a nightmare that she can't wake up from.

She is now coping with the loss of her sisters, 22-year-old Keyonna and  21-year-old Keshell Brown.

According to the family, they are two of the four victims police discovered dead in a Murray Hill house on Randolph Street late Thursday night.

"They did nothing wrong to nobody," said aunt Tashay Brown. "That's why we can't understand why somebody would want to hurt them."

The Jacksonville Sheriff's Office said a gunman's rampage left two women and two men dead. Police identified the male victims as Gontrell Hagans and Derek Williams. Williams is the only person police believe lived at the house in the 1100 block of Randolph Street.

Portions of Kingsbury and Randolph streets were surrounded by crime-scene tape late Friday as investigators looked for clues in what they call a mass murder.

Family members are in disbelief, shocked their loved ones were the victims of what they call a senseless act of violence.

"You're a coward," said Tashay Brown. "Anybody who can shoot somebody dead, wherever you're at, I hope they find your cowardly self."

Tashay Brown says the family plans to establish a memorial fund in honor of the two young women.
