Police in Sanford, Florida, have arrested the alleged triggerman behind a pair of shootings early Monday that left his girlfriend dead and five others wounded — including a teenage girl who was waiting for the school bus.

Investigators identified the suspect as Allen Cashe, but they are withholding the names of the six victims until next of kin notifications can be made.

Formal charges have not been filed against Cashe. However, authorities will likely lodge “multiple” criminal counts against the 31-year-old before he is arraigned later this week, a Sanford police spokeswoman says.

Court records do not show if Cashe has retained an attorney who could comment on his behalf. He remains behind bars without bail.

Detectives describe Monday’s violence as a series of escalations, beginning with a domestic dispute between Cashe and his girlfriend at her home shortly after 6 a.m.

That fight followed two previous verbal arguments between the couple that were so intense police were called to intervene.

A Sanford officer had to separate the couple at a gas station just a few hours before the shooting, according to authorities. Then, not even an hour later, police received a second call about the quarreling couple.

This time, officers learned they were arguing over personal possessions.
