NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Police say a man went on a shooting spree in North Nashville, killing two young sisters and then carjacked and killed an elderly man.

Metro Police arrested 24-year-old Queshan Brooks on Friday.

The Tennessean reports Brooks first opened fire on his stepmother and her two daughters around 4:15 p.m. at their home. The girls, 5-year-old Samaii Daniel and 8-year-old Sammarre Daniel, died from gunshot wounds to the head.

Shortly after, police responded to a call involving a carjacking and shooting that killed 70-year-old Robert Payne. Police located the car that had been recently abandoned, and followed tracks in the snow to take Brooks into custody.

He is charged with three counts of murder. Brooks' stepmother was being treated for non-life-threatening gunshot wounds at Vanderbilt University Medical Center.
