(Newser) – Federal authorities have arrested a man wanted in the slayings of four people and injuring of a man in a pair of shootings in Georgia. The Georgia Bureau of Investigation says 27-year-old Daylon Delon Gamble was arrested Sunday in Indiana by the US Marshal's Service. Gamble, who was wanted on four charges of murder in the shootings Thursday night in Rockmart, about 45 miles northwest of Atlanta, was taken into custody without incident, according to a GBI news release posted on their Facebook page.

Authorities say 48-year-old Helen Rose Mitchell and 19-year-old Jaequnn Davis died at one home, and 24-year-old Arkeyla Perry and 26-year-old Dadrian Cummings died at another home, the AP reports. The GBI says 24-year-old Peerless Brown was injured at the home where Mitchell and Davis were killed. Authorities have not disclosed a motive or Gamble's relationship to the victims, though they say the killings were not random. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that Gamble was paroled from state prison in 2016 after a 2011 conviction for armed robbery and burglary. (A suspect in five Louisiana murders was arrested in Virginia on Sunday.)
