ST. PAUL, Minn. - Homicide investigators in Saint Paul are seeking two suspects in the killing of a man on March 30.

Police hope circulating a pair of mugshots will garner the help of the public in locating 20-year-old Juan Martinez and 18-year-old Christina Washington, both of St. Paul.

Investigators won't elaborate yet on what links the suspects to the murder of 56-year-old Leonard Allen Christian Sr, 56, of Saint Paul. They do, however, say the two are to be considered armed and dangerous.

Christian Sr. was found shot to death just after 3 a.m. March 30 inside his residence in the 1000 block of West Central Avenue, near the intersection of Victoria Street. Callers reported hearing shots fired coming from the rear of the residence.

Photos and information on Martinez and Washington have also been forwarded to law enforcement agencies across the country through the use of a national database.

Martinez and Washington were last known to be using a 1997 Plymouth Voyager minivan for transportation.

Anyone with information on the case or the whereabouts of Martinez and Washington is asked to call the Saint Paul Police Department's homicide unit at 651-266-5650.
