Terrell police have captured the man suspected in multiple overnight shootings that left five people dead by Tuesday morning.

Charles Brownlow was captured by officers around 1:30 a.m. Tuesday morning after allegedly killing his mother, his aunt, and three others.

Terrell Police Chief Jody Lay updated the media early Tuesday morning.

"We’re all in a state of shock, you have a tendency to think, 'How can that happen here?'" said Lay. "This is a country community, a rural community, people are real close and this is going to have a really big impact on us."

The investigation started after a call to a home in the 400 block of Tyler Street in Terrell. Officers found the body of a woman in the home dead of an apparent gunshot wound. Neighbors told NBC 5 DFW that woman is Brownlow's aunt.

Investigators tell NBC 5 that the body of another woman was found in a home in the 300 block of Stalling Street. A member of the Terrell Fire Department saw smoke coming from the home around 5:30 p.m. Monday and investigated, finding a body inside. People who know the victim told NBC 5 that victim is Brownlow's mother.

Police believe that home is where Brownlow had been living. Officers believe he stole a car from this location.
