Akron police say three women were found dead inside a home on Saturday night.

It happened around 7:40 p.m. while officers were conducting a welfare check at a house on Sycamore Street, which is one block from S. Main Street.

According to the responding officers, they first tried knocking on the door and then began looking through the windows. That's when they noticed a woman on the floor and forced their way inside, discovering two more women. 

All three victims were pronounced dead at the scene by EMS of suspected drug overdoses.

Police are not releasing their names at this time, but say they are 20, 20 and 21-years-old.
