A supect believed to be responsible for the deaths of seven people in two Tennessee homes Saturday was tracked down and taken into custody after being shot by an officer.

“Michael Cummins, the person-of-interest in the Sumner County homicides is 25 years old, 5’7″, 180 pounds, with brown hair and blue eyes,” the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation (TBI) said in a statement.

From the TBI Newsroom:

TBI Agents began investigating the deaths on Saturday evening, shortly after authorities, responding to a 911 call from a family member, found the bodies of four individuals in a home in the 1100 block of Charles Brown Road. They also found a fifth, injured victim at the scene, and medics transported the individual to the hospital.

Authorities soon learned of a second scene, a short distance away in the 1500 block of Luby Brown Road, where they discovered another deceased individual. TBI Forensic Scientists processing the scene on Charles Brown Road located the body of a fifth homicide victim at that location early Sunday morning. Efforts to identify the victims and notify their appropriate next-of-kin remain ongoing. The bodies will be sent to Nashville for autopsies.

During the course of the investigation, authorities developed information leading to Michael Cummins (DOB: 9-8-93) as the suspect in the crimes. During the coordinated search by law enforcement agencies from across the region, TBI employed its aircraft and located, in a creek bed approximately one mile from the first scene, indications of an individual.

More than a dozen law enforcement officers from the county’s joint SWAT Team went to that location, where they encountered Cummins. The situation escalated, for reasons under investigation, and resulted in at least one officer firing his service weapon, striking Cummins. Medics transported him to a local hospital for treatment with injuries that were not immediately believed to be life-threatening. No law enforcement officers sustained injuries in the arrest effort.

Efforts to identify the motive in the homicides, along with Cummins’ relationships with the victims remains ongoing. In turn, all investigative findings will be forwarded to the District Attorney General for his further review and consideration.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to everyone involved.

God Bless.
