Virginia shooting suspect surrenders

Police capture suspect after overnight manhunt


 

A man suspected of shooting eight people to death at a Virginia home surrendered on Wednesday morning. Christopher Speight, 39, approached officers around 7 am and turned himself in. At about noon Tuesday, a man was seen clinging to life along the side of a country road. The man later died of his injuries, but the officer who responded to the emergency call heard more gunshots, and seven men and women were found dead at a nearby home. As officers tried to flush out the gunman, Speight fired at a police helicopter and fled. Police say Speight was acquainted with the victims, but more details were not released.
