A man who is the suspect in a triple homicide in Florida has been arrested and now faces 20 charges in connection to the crime.
On Nov. 16, the Osceola County Sheriff’s Office in Florida said deputies received a call around 7 a.m. about a deceased person at an apartment complex near Royal Palm Drive, according to FOX 35.
Police found three people dead, two in one building and one in another, FOX 35 reported. A person of interest was identified by a witness, cops say.
Cops say that of the three victims, one was 16 years old, according to FOX 35. Their identities have not yet been released.
Law enforcement soon confirmed the suspect, later identified as Kevin Torres, was reportedly barricaded in a car in Orange County, Florida, and threatening “suicide by cop,” according to FOX 35.
The Osceola County Sheriff confirmed that the suspect opened fire, but not in the direction of the deputies, FOX 35 reported.
Cops said the deputies did not return fire, and Torres eventually gave up and was detained, according to FOX 35.
Jail records obtained by FOX 35 show that Torres is facing 20 charges, including three counts of premeditated murder, child abuse, abuse of a dead human body and grand theft, FOX 35 reported.
Torres is expected to have his first appearance before a judge on Nov. 18, according to FOX 35.
Police have not said if Torres knew the suspect or released a possible motive in the killings.
