A four-day manhunt ended Tuesday in the city of Cut and Shoot, Texas, with the arrest of a man accused of fatally shooting five people in Cleveland, Texas.
Francisco Oropesa stands accused of killing five of his neighbors with what NBC News described as an “AR-15 rifle” Friday night. One of the dead was a 9-year-old boy, according to the report.
In announcing the arrest of 38-year-old Oropesa, San Jacinto County Sheriff Greg Capers called the suspected shooter a “coward.”
A call to an FBI tip line Tuesday evening led to the arrest barely an hour later, Jimmy Paul, the assistant special agent in charge of the FBI’s Houston field office, told reporters.
He was concealed in a strange spot.
“He was caught hiding in a closet underneath some laundry,” Capers said. He was arrested without injury and was on the way to Capers’ jail in Coldspring, Texas, the sheriff said.
