UPDATE: Police have identified the three people killed Saturday in a triple homicide in St. Paul.

St. Paul Police identified the victims as 30-year-old D'Zondria D. Wallace, 14-year-old La'Porsha Wallace and 11-year-old Ja'Corbie Wallace.

Police also announced 26-year-old TeKeith Svyone Jones was arrested Sunday in connection to the fatal shootings. He remained in jail Monday, pending charges.

The department said investigators aren't looking for any other suspects in the case.

Police have arrested a suspect in connection with a shooting that killed a mother and her two children Saturday in St. Paul.

According to St. Paul Police Chief Todd Axtell, a SWAT team arrested the 26-year-old male suspect around 7:25 p.m. Sunday at an apartment building on the 2100 block of Wilson Avenue in St. Paul. 

No other information on the suspect was immediately available.

According to a police account of the homicide, officers found a woman and her two children with gunshot wounds Saturday afternoon at a home on the 700 block of Jessie Street while responding to a medical emergency.

Two of the victims, a woman in her 30s and a girl in her early teens, were pronounced dead at the scene. A boy between ages 8 and 12 was rushed to the hospital but later succumbed to his injuries, police said.

An officer had been to the house an hour earlier to perform a welfare check after a concerned family member called from Tennessee. But the woman said she was OK and declined to call her family using the officer's phone.
