Serrano-Vitorino - who police had described as dangerous and
possibly armed with an AK-47 - was detained in eastern Missouri
near Interstate 70, a major east-west highway, authorities said.
The 40-year-old was charged on Tuesday with first-degree murder
in connection with the fatal shootings of four men at a home in
Kansas City, Wyandotte County officials said.
Serrano-Vitorino, a Mexican national according to the St. Louis
Post-Dispatch, is then suspected of fatally shooting a man in
eastern Missouri about 170 miles away, according to police.
The suspect's vehicle was found abandoned near the Missouri
crime scene, officials said.
The Kansas City Star reported the Kansas victims were shot in a
house next door to where Serrano-Vitorino lived and two of them
were brothers. Their bodies were found late on Monday.
