A Minnesota man has been arrested after he allegedly dressed up as a UPS delivery driver, broke into a home and killed three people, according to authorities.

Around 12:30 p.m. on Jan. 26, officers were dispatched to a home in Coon Rapids after hearing “sounds of a disturbance” during a call, according to court documents obtained by KSTP-TV.

At the residence, police found three dead victims — later identified as 42-year-old Shannon Patricia Jungwirth; her husband, 39-year-old Mario Alberto Trejo Estrada; and her 20-year-old son, Jorge Alexander Reyes-Jungwirth. Police also found two young children in the home, both of whom were present at the time of the shootings, officials said.

Surveillance footage obtained from a pole camera across from the home allegedly shows a blue Nissan Altima drive up and park in front of the house before three suspects — two wearing UPS-style clothing — exited the car and entered the home, court documents show.

One suspect could be seen carrying a cardboard box, authorities said.

Police also obtained surveillance video from inside the home, which allegedly shows one of the suspects, later identified as 37-year-old Alonzo Pierre Mingo, in what appeared to be a uniform and holding a man at gunpoint as he led him to a bedroom where a woman and two small children were present, authorities said.

Mingo allegedly can be seen demanding money from the man before leaving the room with the man, woman and children, officers said.

Mingo returns to the room a short while later with the woman, who he later shot, video shows, according to police. Officials said the two children could be seen in the footage exiting the room and crying after the the woman fell to the floor.


All three suspects can be seen leaving the residence together following the shootings, police said.

After discovering the victims' bodies, law enforcement officials issued an alert and officers were able to locate Mingo in his Nissan in Fridley, about 10 miles away from the scene of the crime, authorities said.

Mingo initially denied leaving his house or previously working at UPS, but police alleged they found a UPS uniform in his backpack and fingerprints on a cardboard box left at the crime scene.
