The killings prompted a massive manhunt for 25-year-old Michael Cummins, who lived at one of the homes.

The TBI said four victims were found at the home and a fifth victim was at another home on Luby Daniels Road.

Police identified Cummins Saturday night as a suspect, leading to a search throughout the wooded area nearby.

Authorities say the man arrested in connection with five rural Tennessee slayings suffered non-life-threatening injuries after being shot while being capture by police.

Police say officers responding to a 911 call from a family member led to the original discovery of four bodies and an injured person at the first home.
