UPDATE: The suspect accused of killing five people in two south Louisiana parishes was arrested in Virginia.
The Ascension Parish Sheriff’s Office says 21-year-old Dakota Theriot was arrested Sunday morning in Richmond County, Virginia.
Theriot is charged with two counts of first-degree murder, home invasion, and illegal use of weapons.
Investigators say he shot and killed his parents and three other people in Louisiana on Saturday.
The shootings prompted a multi-state manhunt for the suspect before he was located in Virginia’s Northern Neck.
The Ascension County Sheriff’s Office says Theriot will be transported back to Louisiana from Virginia.
