A Spring Hill man was arrested Friday night in Pinellas County in connection to a triple murder in Kentucky.

The Louisville Metro Police Department say 46-year-old Christopher Olivo is facing three counts of murder and a charge of Tampering with Physical Evidence.

The Pinellas County Sheriff's Office arrested Olivo around 10:13 p.m. Friday at United States 19 North and Ulmerton Road in Largo, Florida.

Olivo was taken into custody around 10:15 p.m. after deputies stopped his vehicle at US 19 North and Ulmerton Road.

The three bodies were found in the home on Venango Drive earlier Friday afternoon.

Authorities say two juveniles were located inside the home unharmed.

Olivo was wearing a ballistic vest and had an AK-47 assault rifle in the passenger seat of his vehicle during his arrest. However, officials believe Olivo fled the scene with his 2-year-old daughter, whom he shared with one of the victims. The child was later found safe in Hernando County. Members with the LMPD Homicide Unit are traveling to Florida to transport him back to Kentucky.

Further details about Olivo's capture will be released during a news conference planned for Monday at the Louisville, Ky, Metropolitan Police Department, the Pinellas County Sheriff's Office news release said.
