U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials announced that a Mexican national is facing triple murder charges. The man was reportedly deported six times, most recently in 2013.

Bonifacio Oseguera-Gonzalez, 29, pled not guilty in Marion County Superior Court to a single count of attempted murder and three counts of aggravated murder on Tuesday.

Authorities found two men, who lived on a blueberry farm in the rural town of Woodburn, dead on the scene, a third victim, a woman, later died at the hospital. Police said a severely injured man survived the shooting and gave a witness account of the events to investigators.

Police identified the victims as 26-year-old Edmundo Amaro-Bajonero, along with 60-year-old Ruben Rigoberto-Reyes, and 26-year-old Katie Gildersleeve, 30, of Logsden, Oregon.

Oseguera-Gonzalez was arrested by Oregon State Troopers several hours later, 100 miles away from the scene of the murders on Interstate 84 in the Columbia River Gorge.

In a probable cause statement to investigators, Oseguera-Gonzalez had acknowledged to shooting the four victims on the farm, according to the Associated Press.

Fox News quoted ICE officials, who said on Friday that the Mexican citizen had no significant past criminal convictions but requested that Oregon authorities to turn him over to them if he, for some reason, is released from custody.

Police haven’t specified a motive for the killings or what the relationship Oseguera-Gonzalez had with the victims.

Deborah Burdzik, the suspect’s attorney, has declined to comment regarding her client’s immigration status.

The case has gained national attention prompting presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump to comment on the case on Friday, via his Twitter feed, where he said the suspect “should have never been here.”
