(KMOV)-- The Violent Offense Team is now deactivated following the arrests of three individuals in relation to at least one homicide.
The St. Louis Police Department activated the Team after several recent homicides, including the death of a woman shot while driving on Page Thursday.
Charges are expected to be filed Monday if prosecutors have sufficient evidence.
The Violent Offense Team is activated under special circumstances, including the need for a timely investigation or certain expertise.
St. Louis police believe the group they have been questioning has ties to multiple homicides and shootings. They say the goal of this activation was to gather the evidence needed to make an arrest.
Officials say the Team’s work could lead to additional arrests in the coming days and weeks.
