According to detectives, 46-year-old Christopher Olivo was identified as the suspect in the murders of a man and two women in Louisville, Kentucky. 

He was spotted Friday evening driving on US 19 in Pinellas County. Deputies were able to stop Olivo, who was apparently wearing a ballistic vest and had an AK 47 rifle on his passenger seat.
