A man in southern Pennsylvania shot and killed three people Friday and fled with his 4-year-old daughter before being arrested 250 miles away in Ohio, officials said Saturday.
Kevin Matthew Cleeves, 35, had been trying to arrange a time to pick up his daughter, but his wife didn’t answer the phone, the Waynesboro, Pa., Record-Herald reported Saturday, citing court records.
Cleeves drove to Quincy Township, just north of the Maryland border, and began arguing with three people sitting in a car outside a house there, records said. He shot and killed all three people, then abducted his daughter, police say.
His relationship with the dead is not currently known.
Pennsylvania State Police police issued an AMBER Alert – information about suspects and their vehicles that's sent to authorities and relayed to the public after a suspected child abduction. But the alert was canceled hours later after police found Cleeves in a small city near Youngstown, Ohio.
