Indiana police on Wednesday arrested a man suspected in the “gruesome” killing of a woman and three young children earlier in the day, reports said.
Cohen Bennet Hancz-Barron, 21, was taken into custody hours after cops named him as a suspect and warned he was considered “armed and extremely dangerous.”
Fort Wayne police haven’t identified the four victims or said how they were killed, but Fort Wayne Sgt. Jeremy Webb told KTLA 5 that the children were “very young.”
“When you have murdered children, it’s going to be gruesome,” Webb said.
Cops found the bodies at about 10:45 a.m. after responding to “an unknown problem,” a press release from the Fort Wayne Police Department said.
