BALTIMORE (AP) -- A suspect was arrested Monday night in the killing of five women, including a grandmother, her daughter and granddaughter, who were found shot to death in a home.

Police identified the man as Ismael Malik Wilson, 27, and said arrest warrants had been issued for three other men.

Police said one person was able to escape the house and witnesses led them to identify the four, but did not say if the person who escaped identified the four.

Authorities also said they believed the house where the killing took place was used for drug activity, but investigators did not believe the women were involved in drug dealing.

The dead included a 54-year-old woman, her 39-year-old daughter and her 18-year-old granddaughter. Also killed were two women, 26 and 23, whose relationships to the others was unclear.
