ST. LOUIS (KMOV.com) – CrimeStoppers is offering a reward of $20,000 to anyone who has information on a quadruple shooting that occurred in north St. Louis County Thursday.

Just before midnight, a woman, two men and a boy were found with apparent gunshot wounds inside a home in the 10400 block of Balmoral Drive in Glasgow Village. St. Louis County Police officials said they went to the home after they were contacted by family members to conduct a welfare check.

"It's just as grisly as you'd probably imagine it to be," said St. Louis County Police Department Officer Benjamin Granda. "This is a terrible incident and we're gonna have to get to the bottom of it. So, If anybody has any information about this please call our department immediately." 

The incident is under investigation by the St. Louis County Police Department Crimes Against Persons Unit. Police told News 4 all of the victims were last seen or heard from Wednesday night. Police have ruled out murder-suicide as a scenario that played out.

The identities of three of the victims, 56-year-old Patricia Steward, 20-year-old Joseph Corley and Deandre Kelley Jr., 18, of Florissant, were released on Friday. The identity of a 10-year-old victim, Terrence Dehart, was released on Tuesday.

Steward was the mother of Corley and the adoptive mother of Dehart. Kelley was a friend of Corley.

The Mehville School District said Dehart moved to the district in October 2015, and spent the rest of the school year and the following year at Blades Elementary. Dehart began the current school year at Forder Elementary. 

Anyone with information regarding the apparent quadruple shooting is asked to contact the St. Louis County Police Department at 636-529-8210 or CrimeStoppers at 1-866-371-8477.

Steward's family has set up a GoFundMe account to help pay for funeral expenses.
