TERRELL, TX (KTVT/WFAA/CNN) – New details are emerging after a Texas man is arrested in connection with multiple killings in north Texas.
Police in Terrell, TX say the man suspected of going on a killing spree Monday knew several of the victims.
Police caught up with the suspect, Charles Brownlow, in a wooded area in the city early on Tuesday morning.
Investigators found five people dead across the city, and are still figuring out why it happened.
"We have some indications; I don't really want to speculate on a motive. We do have several theories that we're working on," said Terrell, TX Police Department Chief Jody Lay.
Police were called to the first scene Monday evening, and found Brownlow's aunt, Belinda Young Walker, shot in the head.
A house a few blocks away was on fire, firefighters found the body of Mary Catherine Brownlow, the suspect's mother.
Once police found the connection, their search began for Charles Brownlow.
At a third crime scene, witnesses say they saw the suspect and heard gunshots, but not one was injured. At scene no. 4, police discovered a man a woman dead. A three-year-old child was found unharmed in the homes. Police say Brownlow knew the couple.
It didn't stop there – a little later, a fifth person was found dead at a store, which is where a police spotted the suspect.
"Had the police officer not intervened, I'm very concerned we would have had additional situations," said Lay.
Officers eventually gave chase, and Chief Lay said it ended when Brownlow crashed into a heavily-wooded area, ran off and was eventually spotted by a helicopter.
"They were able to take him into custody without incident, and he was determined to be Charles Everett Brownlow Jr.," said Lay.
Lay says so far Brownlow is facing once count of capital murder and one count of evading arrest. More charges are expected in the coming days.
