On April 26, Denver police responded to a home after a woman called 911 to say people inside an apartment were shot. When officers arrived, they found three people dead, according to the Denver District Attorney’s Office.

The victims were identified as 4-year-old Me’khi Parham Allen, 65-year-old Denise Hood and 23-year-old Donnie Allen Jr., according to prosecutors.

They all died from multiple gunshots.

In the days after the shooting, multiple anonymous tipsters identified Elijah Hood as the suspect, and he was arrested. This week, Hood was indicted on charges of three counts of first-degree murder, one count of child abuse resulting in death and one count of first-degree burglary.

Investigators did not say if Hood knew the victims before the shooting.
