PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

The manhunt is over for three people accused of killing a California hiker and his dog, and the search came to an end in Portland.

Portland Police said the three people were arrested at the St. Francis dining hall on Wednesday afternoon.

Detectives identified one of the suspects as Morrison Lampley, 23, Sean Angold, 24, and Lilla Allgood, 18.

Police said the three were spotted driving the victim's car in downtown Portland and the GPS in the car played a role in their arrest.

The three are suspected of killing 67-year-old Steve Carter and his Doberman on a popular trail near San Francisco on Monday.

Investigators said bother Carter and his dog were shot multiple times, the dog's leash was still in his hand. Since Monday, investigators said tips about possible suspects poured in. 

Using GPS in Carter's car, gas station surveillance pictures and even social media photos, investigators were able to track the group to Portland.

Investigators confirm the three are the same three people caught on surveillance video in and around Fairfax after the murder. But they still don't know why Carter was killed.

FOX 12 learned Carter was a well known tantric instructor and counselor in Marin County. People who knew him visited the trail where he was killed, to pay their respects.

Carter and his wife had moved to Costa Rica, but recently returned to California so Carter's wife, Lokita, could be treated for breast cancer. She has a Go Fund Me page to raise money to help cover her costs, which has now become a message board about Carter's death.

"This is just a horrible event that's affecting all of us very deeply in many ways. Everyone loved Steve. He was a really loving man, and he devoted his life to the arts of love," said Shakti Wellins, a friend of Carters.

All three suspects are now in police custody. There's no word yet on if they will be brought down to Marin County.
