Tennessee authorities filed a slew of charges against a man on Friday in connection to the slayings of seven people found in two locations last month.

Suspect Michael Cummins was charged with six counts of first-degree murder, one count of criminal homicide, one count of attempt to commit first-degree murder and one count of theft, the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation (TBI) announced in a news release.

The agency began probing the fatalities in Sumner County on April 27, as well as an officer-involved shooting that linked to Cummins, officials said.

Six bodies were found at a residence on Charles Brown Road, as was another individual “who was alive but injured,” TBI said. Another body was discovered at a second scene on Luby Brown Road.

Cummins was identified as a suspect and a search for him ensued before he was located, the agency said.
