A Mississippi man was taken into custody Sunday after a shooting rampage that left eight people dead, including a sheriff’s deputy.

The shootings occurred at three homes Saturday night in rural Lincoln County, about 70 miles south of Jackson. As authorities took suspect Cory Godbolt to the ground, he said he had been shot by someone inside one of the homes. One was in Bogue Chitto, an unincorporated community of about 500 people.

As Godbolt was being taken into custody, he told the Clarion-Ledger he went on the shooting spree because he loved his wife and children and he loves Bogue Chitto.
