CLARK COUNTY, WA (KPTV) -

The Washington State Patrol and deputies with the Cowlitz County Sheriff’s Office have apprehended a suspect tied to three deaths late Friday in Woodland.

Brent W. Luyster was taken into custody around 4:15 p.m. Saturday after he was found in a gold Ford Explorer on Ocean Beach Highway.

Deputies said Luyster was taken into custody without incident.

Officers with the Woodland Police Department first responded to reports of a possible gunshot victim who came into a convenience store in Woodland around 10:20 p.m. Friday.

That victim led them to search a property on the 4000 block of Northwest 417th Street in Woodland where Clark County Sheriff’s Office deputies and Southwest Regional Swat officers found three victims that had been killed.

Neighbor Jeff Daniels said he heard multiple gunshots around 10:15 p.m. Friday but wasn’t concerned since it happens often in the area. It wasn’t until later in the evening he saw multiple law enforcement vehicles he became worried.

“It was scary and I wanted my family to be safe,” Daniels said.

According to deputies, detectives with the Clark County Regional Major Crimes Unit are continuing the investigation into the deaths.
