Prince George’s County police on Sunday identified three victims of a triple homicide in Capitol Heights.

Police said Ortiz Ola, 38, of the 5200 block of Marlboro Pike; Weldon Mason, 33, of the 10000 block of Washington Boulevard in Laurel; and Staci Taneesha White, 33, of the 13000 block of Larchdale Road in Laurel were found fatally shot in an apartment at about 5:30 p.m. Saturday.

Officers were called to the apartment in the 5200 block of Marlboro Pike after a family member of one of the victims called 911 to report finding the bodies. They were pronounced dead on the scene.

Detectives were canvassing the neighborhood on Sunday, passing out fliers and looking for witnesses. Investigators said preliminarily that there did not appear to be any prior calls for service at the apartment and that they were still working to identify suspects and establish a motive.
