The four victims, all from Minnesota, were identified as Matthew Isiah Pettus, 26; Loyace Foreman III, 35; and Jasmine Christine Sturm, 30, all from St. Paul; as well as Nitosha Lee Flug-Presley, 30, of Stillwater.

The suspect in custody was identified as Darren Lee McWright (Osborne), 56, of St. Paul. The suspect wanted by police is Antoine Darnique Suggs, 38, of St. Paul, according to the Dunn County Sheriff’s Office. They believe he could be in the Twin Cities area and is considered armed and dangerous.

Police didn’t immediately release a motive as the investigation continues, according to CBS affiliate WSAW-TV. The victims were found late Saturday after they were last seen at a bar getting into someone’s vehicle. A preliminary autopsy report from the Ramsey County Medical Examiner’s Office said the four people died of gunshot wounds.

According to CBS Minnesota, Presley was a mother, who leaves behind two children. Her father told the station that she was “a beautiful mother, granddaughter, just an inspiration and joy in my life.”

Foreman was described as “loving, funny, connected and human,” by his mother, Jessica Foreman, according to CBS Minnesota.

Pettus and Sturm were siblings, the station said.
