RUSSELLVILLE, Ark. — A man wielding two revolvers killed two people, wounded four and briefly took a hostage before surrendering Monday, and officers later found five more bodies at his house, authorities said.
At least six other relatives were unaccounted for after the bodies in the house were tentatively identified, and were feared dead, authorities said.
R. Gene Simmons Sr., 47, of Dover, seven miles north of Russellville, surrendered to Police Chief Herb Johnston here at the offices of a trucking company where he had once worked, police said.
Before the five bodies were found, Johnston had said that Simmons would be charged with two counts of capital murder and four counts of attempted capital murder. A bond hearing was set for today. Simmons has not yet been charged in the deaths at the house.
