Triple homicide at St. Paul home

Three people were shot and killed early Friday by masked assailants in a St. Paul home.

Maria McLay, 32, and McLay's boyfriend and daughter, Otahl Saunders, 31, and Brittany Kekadakis, 15, were killed by a group of men demanding money and drugs at around 6:30 am Friday.

McLay's two youngest children survived the shooting and fled the scene to a neighbor's house.

The intruders likely had some connection with Saunders, whose record includes charges involving drugs, money and stolen property, police said.
