CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas - Corpus Christi police say a man has been arrested after three people were killed and a child was injured in a shooting on Sunday at a trailer park in Texas.

CBS affiliate KZTV identified the suspect as 63-year-old Sammuel Toomey. He is facing three capital murder charges as well as a charge of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. Police said Toomey confessed to the shootings after being read his rights.

The Corpus Christi Caller-Times reports that when police arrived at the trailer park on Sunday around 7 p.m., they found two women, ages 32 and 53, and one 56-year-old man dead outside of different residences. The child, 10, was taken to an area hospital with gunshot wounds. He is expected to survive, according to the station.

Neighbors and witnesses helped authorities locate the suspect. Police have not identified the victims.

Officers say the exteriors of several homes were processed as crime scenes. Police called the investigation "complex," according to the paper.

KZTV reports Toomey had his first court appearance on Monday. His face was covered in bruises and stitches. A judge set the suspect's bond at $3.1 million - $1 million for each of the capital murder charges and $100,000 for the aggravated assault charge.
