Omaha Police have released the names of the three victims shot and killed in North Omaha Tuesday night. 

The victims are 69-year-old John W. Dalton, 65-year-old Jean Dalton and 18-year-old Leonna Dalton-Phillip. 

John Dalton Jr., 46, was originally named a person of interest in the case, but Wednesday morning a felony warrant for first-degree murder was issued for him. He is the son of victims John and Jean Dalton and the uncle of Leonna Dalton-Phillip. 

Dalton Jr. was convicted of manslaughter in 1999 for killing his then-wife in 1998 and was in prison until 2010.
