Detroit police said they've made one arrest in the slaying of three people in a home on the city's west side.


21-year-old Shadell Karvez Love of Detroit will be charged with the 3 murders of 25-year-old Lauren Trotty, 20-year-old India Coleman and 20-year-old Curtis Clemens.

On March 8th, Detroit police said they arrested Shadell Love in the slaying of three people found in a home on the city's west side.

The bodies of the three victims were found Thursday morning in a house on Coyle Street.

All of the victims had been shot.

Neighbors said the home had been vacant for a couple of days. They believed people were squatting there.

Family says children were inside home

According to one of the first family members to arrive at the west Detroit house on Coyle Street, the 5-year-old daughter of one of the three victims was in the house. She apparently had been with the bodies for several hours.

"Now I think she is going to be traumatized for the rest of her life because she saw her mom get killed," said Kenyetta Hunt, the victim's cousin.

There was also a baby girl in the house.

"There was some noise, some shots heard mid-evening yesterday [Wednesday]. And apparently I think some family members were notified and they came to check on them and discovered them," said Detroit police inspector Dwayne Blackmon.
