Nassau police investigate a triple homicide on Perry Street in Hempstead on Saturday, Aug. 12, 2017.

Bobby Vanderhall, 34, allegedly took a large hammer from Lynn Vanderhall's garage on Perry Street in Long Island around 1.15am and broke through a basement door. He took a framing hammer from the garage, broke into the home and attacked the group of women, according to police.

Police said Vanderhall then found his mother in the living room and started to bludgeon her with the hammer.

He found Melissa and a second friend of hers on the staircase and hit them too.
