EDMONTON -- RCMP say a search of a property where police shot a suspect wanted in a triple homicide west of Edmonton found more than 30 firearms, some of them loaded.
Officers also found illegal rifle ammunition magazines, bullets and body armour.
Mickell Bailey, 19, has been charged with two counts of first-degree murder and one count of second-degree murder in the deaths.
Insp. Gibson Glavin said further charges were pending.
"We were conducting a search that was part of the homicide investigation and we recovered a number of firearms and ammunition, body armour as well as various types of stolen property," Glavin said Monday.
"This is where they have been found. So part of the investigation will be to trace ownership."
A neighbour has said the farm where Bailey lives is owned by his grandfather, Herb Heintz.
Investigators have said that an officer hit Bailey with a single shot last Tuesday, as he walked out of a house carrying a firearm during a confrontation with police.
The homicide victims have been identified as Daniel Miller, 46, Roxanne Berube, 36, and her 16-year-old daughter, Jazmine Lyon.
Their bodies were found in a home near the hamlet of Peers, just outside of Edson, on Nov. 29.
Berube was once married to Bailey's uncle.
"They are all known to each other, including the accused, but we are not speaking to the exact relationships between them," Glavin said.
Bailey was treated in hospital last week for a gunshot wound and was listed in serious condition.
He is to appear in Edson provincial court on Dec. 15.
