20-year-old Marcus Dansby is facing four initial counts of murder. He’s being held in the Allen County Jail without bond.

Police were called to 3006 Holton Avenue around 4 a.m. Sunday for an unknown problem.

Inside the home, police found three people dead – two women and a man. A fourth victim, a woman, was transported to a hospital in critical condition.

Police have not released a possible motive for the crime.

It’s unclear if the fourth murder charge is connected to the fourth victim who was initially in critical condition, or if its the result of another matter.

Police have not said what led them to Dansby. It’s also unknown the relationship between the victims and the relationship between Dansby and the victims.

FWPD is not currently looking for any other suspects.

WANE-TV is working to confirm additional details.

The Allen County Coroner has yet to release information about the victims, including the exact cause and manner of death.

If officially declared homicides by the coroner, the deaths will mark the 28th, 29th, and 30th homicides in Allen County this year.
