CROSSVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation says it has arrested a suspect in the shooting deaths of four people in a car in the former Renegade Mountain resort in Cumberland County.

TBI Director Mark Gwyn said in a press conference Friday that Jacob Allen Bennett was arrested on a parole violation in Rhea County late Thursday.

Gwyn said law enforcement officials "believe that we have the person that committed these crimes."

A car containing the bodies was discovered by a resident of the community about 50 miles west of Knoxville on Thursday morning.

The victims were identified as 22-year-old Danielle Jacobson, 16-year-old John Lajeunesse and two 17 year olds, Steven Presley and Dominic Davis.

Law enforcement officials declined to discuss any possible motives for the shootings.
