Suspect in Louisiana shooting deaths caught in Virginia

Dakota Theriot 21

According to the Ascension and Livingston sheriff's offices, Dakota Theriot is suspected of killing his girlfriend, her father and her brother on Saturday morning before driving 25 miles to a neighboring town and shooting his parents.

"We want to make sure that we as quickly as we possibly can, get this person in custody, behind bars where he belongs, where he needs to be", Ard told reporters at a news conference Saturday night.

Before shooting his parents, Theriot allegedly shot dead Summer Ernest, 20, (above) and two of her family members. She says they are both under the age of 8.

Police in Louisiana are looking for a man they say shot and killed five people in two shootings.

She said the older daughter's boyfriend, Dakota Theriot, moved into the house, a few weeks ago. Their 21-year-old son was being sought by authorities and was wanted on first-degree murder charges.

Ascension sheriff's spokeswoman Allison Hudson says authorities believe the shootings in the two parishes are connected, and investigators from both jurisdictions are working together. The dead included her father, Billy Ernest, 43, and her brother Tanner Ernest, 17, according to authorities.

Crystal DeYoung, the girlfriend's aunt, said in an interview with the Associated Press that she believes Theriot had just begun to date her niece.

"My mom is a good judge of character and she just thought he was not good", DeYoung said of Theriot. He shared someone else's post in June that said "wish i could clear my mind jus for one day" (sic) with a sad face emoji.

In May, he re-posted a message which said: "If you have a problem with me, tell me". Webre said detectives have not been able to talk anyone who knows the suspect well.

DONALDSONVILLE, La. (AP) - A man suspected of killing his parents and three other people - including a girl he was dating - has been captured after an intense manhunt spanning several states, authorities in Louisiana said Sunday.

"Dakota Theriot lived there for a brief period of time but was recently asked to leave the residence and not to return", Webre said.

Michael Logan, who lives next door to the mobile home where the Theriots were killed, told The Advocate he heard an ambulance Saturday morning and looked outside to see the mayhem as police arrived.

"The father was gravely injured at the time we found him and has since passed away", Webre said late Saturday.
