A fugitive gunman wanted in the shooting deaths of five men — including a quadruple homicide inside a Kansas City home — was arrested early Wednesday in a ditch next to a Missouri highway.
Pablo Antonio Serrano-Vitorino, 40, was taken into custody after pulling a gun on a passerby at a gas station, Sgt. Scott White of Missouri State Highway Patrol told reporters.
The witness called cops, who found the suspect in a ditch near the junction of Interstate 70 and Highway 19 in Montgomery County, about 170 miles east of Kansas City. A rifle was discovered but Serrano-Vitorino did not resist arrest, according to officials.
“We’re very relieved that it ended the way it did and a lot of citizens are breathing a sigh of relief,” White said. “We didn’t want any more injuries … any more deaths.”
