A manhunt for the gunman who fatally shot four people and injured another in north Georgia ended Sunday with the suspect’s capture and arrest in Indiana, according to the Georgia Bureau of Investigation.
The agency said 27-year-old Daylon Delon Gamble was arrested by U.S. Marshal’s Services and taken into custody without incident.
Gamble was wanted on four charges of murder for the Thursday night shootings in Rockmart, Ga., a small city about 45 miles northwest of Atlanta. No additional information was available.
Authorities said 48-year-old Helen Rose Mitchell and 19-year-old Jaequnn Davis died at one home, and 24-year-old Arkeyla Perry and 26-year-old Dadrian Cummings died at another home. The GBI said 24-year-old Peerless Brown was injured at the home where Mitchell and Davis were killed.
Investigators said the shootings were targeted and appeared to be drug-related, but it was not immediately clear what Gamble's relationship with the victims was.
GBI identified Gamble early Friday after he allegedly fled the scene of the shooting in a stolen Ford Truck. He was being sought by local, state and federal authorities.
