Four people are dead and one person is fighting for her life after an early morning shooting in St. Paul.

A father and his two teenage daughters were found dead at an apartment on English Street in the Payne-Phalen neighborhood of St. Paul around 1 a.m., St. Paul police said. A fourth person was also shot and is in critical condition at the hospital.

Police identified the three victims as 47-year-old Wade Godron McIntosh and his two daughters, 17-year-old Olivia Felis McIntosh and 19-year-old Maria Alana McIntosh. The Pioneer Press says the other person who was shot is the teenagers' mother.

A fourth person was found dead in a wooded area southeast of the apartment. He's been identified as 20-year-old Jeffrey Jemaile Taylor. Investigators say Taylor had a child with Maria McIntosh – that's the 18-month-old child who was reported missing following the shooting, but was found safe early Friday.

A suspect has been arrested, and police identified him as Taylor's 19-year-old half brother. The case against him will be presented to the Ramsey County Attorney's Office on Monday for possible charges.

The three deaths early Friday morning bring the number of homicides in St. Paul this year to seven.

Here's the original story from 6:40 a.m. Friday.

Three people are dead and one is fighting for their life in the hospital after an early morning shooting in St. Paul.

The shooting happened at an apartment block on the 1600 block of English St. in the Payne-Phalen neighborhood at around 1 a.m., St. Paul police say.

Three people were pronounced dead at the scene and a fourth was taken to Regions Hospital with life-threatening injuries. Those killed mark the fifth, sixth, and seventh homicides in the city this year, according to police.

An 18-month-old girl was missing from the scene and police quickly set up a perimeter and began the process of issuing an amber alert. The girl was found a short time later with the help of K-9 officers.

She was with an adult male in a shed nearby. The man has been taken to police headquarters and is being questioned to see if he had any role in the shootings. The girl did not have any apparent injuries but has been taken to Children's Hospital for evaluation.

Police spokesman Steve Linders told media that the shootings happened in more than one location, with forensic teams currently working three crime scenes on the block. He also revealed that the victims and the man found in the shed were all known to each other.

The shooting is not thought to have been a random one and there is no danger to the wider public.

Anyone with information about the shooting are asked to call St. Paul police.
