Alonzo Pierre Mingo, age 37, is facing second-degree murder charges in connection with a brutal home invasion in Coon Rapids, Minnesota. As reported by NBC News, the incident resulted in the death of three family members.

Mingo, disguised as a UPS delivery worker, orchestrated a lethal attack. The victims have been identified as 42-year-old Shannon Patricia Jungwirth, her 20-year-old son Jorge Alexander Reyes-Jungwirth, and her 39-year-old husband, Mario Alberto Trejo Estrada.

The deadly event unfolded on January 26, 2024, when Mingo, accompanied by two others – one also in a UPS uniform, approached the suburban Minneapolis home. Surveillance cameras captured the incident, showing Mingo demanding money from the occupants while wielding a firearm.

The video also documented the shocking moment Mingo fatally shot Shannon Jungwirth at close range. This horrific act was witnessed by two children under five years old, who, fortunately, survived the attack.

Mingo, a former seasonal UPS employee until mid-January, exploited his access to UPS uniforms to stage the invasion. He was arrested several hours after the crime, found in the suspected vehicle used during the incident.

Upon Mingo’s arrest, police discovered UPS clothing and a cardboard box in his vehicle. Fingerprints on the box implicated Mingo in the crime, contradicting his assertions of innocence and claims of being home all day.

Mingo’s criminal past includes a guilty plea to a federal firearms charge, aggravated battery, and a subsequent supervised release. As the investigation continues, police are probing the motive behind the murders, with potential ties to illegal activities.

Local news outlets have reported allegations of Estrada’s involvement in drug trafficking, possibly providing a motive for the crime. A search warrant executed on Estrada’s storage unit revealed narcotics and suggested financial transactions associated with illegal drug sales.

The prosecution team is preparing to argue for a sentence exceeding the guidelines for Mingo, referencing the brutality of the murders and the traumatic impact on the surviving children.

Mingo is being held without bail awaiting further legal proceedings. It has not been confirmed whether charges have been filed against the two alleged accomplices involved in the crime.
