Authorities told CBS affiliate WJTV that the suspect is 35-year-old Willie Corey Godbolt of Bogue Chitto.

The shootings took place at three homes Saturday night — two in Brookhaven and one in Bogue Chitto — about 70 miles south of Jackson, the Mississippi Bureau of Investigation said. The rampage began after authorities got a call about a domestic dispute, investigators said.

The dead included two boys, and Godbolt was being treated for a gunshot wound at a hospital, authorities said. They did not say how he was wounded.

A reporter with The Clarion Ledger, Therese Apel‏, was at the scene during the arrest. She posted images and video footage of Godbolt’s arrest to Twitter.

“I ain’t fit to live, not after what I done,” a handcuffed Godbolt told The Clarion-Ledger.
