A man suspected of killing five of his neighbours in Texas has been arrested after police found him hiding in a cupboard underneath a pile of laundry.
The suspect was detained north of Houston several miles from his own home where the shootings happened last week.
The suspect Francisco Oropesa is accused of attacking his neighbours after they allegedly asked him to stop practising with his rifle as the noise was keeping a baby awake.
The victims included a nine-year-old.
But a member of the public contacted the FBI's tip line on Tuesday evening and the suspect was captured just over an hour later near the town of Cut and Shoot, officials said in a news conference.
Police have not said who owns the home he was arrested in, but the New York Times reported that property records show it belongs to a relative.
The suspect was taken into custody by members of the Border Patrol Tactical Unit, a specialised unit and will be charged with five counts of murder.
An investigation is under way into how the suspect obtained the weapon used in the killings, which was an AR-style rifle.
