Minneapolis brothers charged in Coon Rapids triple homicide

Charges allege Demetrius and Omari Shumpert went to the victims' house wearing delivery uniforms

Two Minneapolis brothers have each been charged with three counts of second-degree intentional murder in connection with the killing of three Coon Rapids family members last month.

Demetrius T. Shumpert, 31, and Omari M. Shumpert, 19, were arrested Tuesday, according to the charges. A third defendant, 37-year-old Alonzo P. Mingo, was arrested and charged with the same counts last month.

The charges follow the deaths of 42-year-old Shannon Jungwirth, her son, 20-year-old Jorge Reyes-Jungwirth, and her husband, 39-year-old Mario Trejo Estrada. All three were found shot in the head on the afternoon of Jan. 26 in various rooms of a house in the 200 block of NW. 94th Avenue. Surveillance footage showed two children under the age of 5 were in the home at the time.
