One arrested in slaying of 4 friends, with 'armed and dangerous' suspect still at large

The victims were found in an abandoned SUV in rural Wisconsin.

Authorities have arrested one man and are searching for another in connection with the fatal shooting of four friends, all of whom were found in an abandoned SUV in WIsconsin earlier this week.

The Dunn County Sheriff's Office said warrants late Wednesday were issued for two suspects wanted in connection with the quadruple killing.

That led to St. Paul police arresting a 56-year-old St. Paul man. Ramsey County jail records show he was taken into custody around 12:53 a.m. Thursday. 

He is currently being held in jail on assault, DWI and disorderly conduct charges emanating from the Twin Cities.

Authorities are still searching for the second suspect wanted in connection with the killings: 38-year-old Antoine Darnique Suggs. 

The Dunn County Sheriff's Office said he is believed to be in the Twin Cities area, and "should be considered armed and dangerous." He should not be approached. Anyone who sees him or knows where he might be is asked to call 911 to report it.

The four victims — Nitosha Lee Flug-Presley, Matthew Isiah Pettus, Loyace Foreman III and Jasmine Christine Sturm — were all from the Twin Cities.

The Dunn County Sheriff's Office said they were shot to death, with whomever pulled the trigger leaving the rural Dunn County scene. Sheriff Kevin Bygd on Tuesday, before any suspects were publicly identified, the location where the SUV was abandoned appeared to be random, and that the shooter or shooters didn't appear to have any connections to the area.

Bring Me The News does not typically name suspects who have not been charged with a crime. However, we chose to identify Suggs because authorities issued a warrant for his arrest and because he is considered armed and dangerous.
