Two men wanted in connection with a mass shooting that killed seven people in Alabama on June 4 were taken into custody in Oregon on Sunday.
Twenty-three-year-old Frederic Rogers and 20-year-old John Legg were stopped by deputies from the Marion County Sheriff’s Office and the Marion County SWAT team near Stayton. The two suspects were driving in a silver Dodge Charger with an Alabama license plate, according to the Marion County Sheriff’s office.
The Statesman Journal reports one of the suspects had a family connection to the Salem area, and they were stopped acting on a tip from Alabama law enforcement.
Officials said that arrest warrants had been issued for Rogers and Legg following a shooting in Valhermoso Springs, Alabama, earlier this month. Seven people and a dog were fatally shot and found in a home that was set on fire.
The victims included three people under the age of 20, WHNT-TV reported.
The fugitives were taken into custody without incident and were booked at the Marion County Jail. They now face capital murder charges and are awaiting extradition back to Alabama.
