KMOV -- A 21-year-old man is charged with triple murder.
Milton Lattimore of East St. Louis was arrested Monday. Police say he shot three women in the parking lot of the Crown Food Mart. The three woman are 24-year-old Jaimaca McDaniel, 26-year-old Tenika Harvey, and 26-year-old Raykel Gathing.
There were also children in the car at the time of the attack, but survived.
The Major Case Squad tells us one of those victim's cousins was gunned down Monday night in East St. Louis.
22-year-old Zonda Garner was killed about a block from the triple murder.
Officers say there's not a connection between the shootings. They say they need tips tonight.
"It may be something that everyone will rationalize what they say, but we need the public's help," said Capt. Eric Van Hook. "However small you think that is, it may help us put our case together."'
The Major Case Squad expects to release more information Tuesday tonight.
