Five Killed In Texas Shooting, Suspect Arrested

Posted: Updated:

TERRELL, Texas (AP) - Police say five people have been killed in a Dallas-area city and a suspect has been arrested.

Terrell (TEHR'-ehl) police Chief Jody Lay says a 36-year-old man was arrested early Tuesday after police chased him into some woods.

Lay didn't specify charges against the suspect or speculate on a motive in the killings.

Police say a woman was found fatally shot Monday afternoon at a house in Terrell, about 30 miles east of Dallas. The body of another woman was found in a burning home nearby. Lay says a man and a woman were found shot to death Monday night at a third residence, and a male clerk was killed at a convenience store.

Police caught the suspect after he stole and wrecked a car, then ran into the woods.
