SNELLVILLE, GA (CBS46) -

Police have located and arrested a man they believe killed three people in Snellville.

Robert Bell, 33, was taken into custody Thursday in Louisiana by the U.S. Marshals and the Fugitive Task Force.

According to the U.S. Marshals, they found Bell outside a homeless shelter in New Orleans while looking for someone with information on his whereabouts. 

Authorities say Bell put up a fight, and denied being himself.  Fingerprints later identified him.

Angelina Benton, 34, her son, Joseph McDonald, 12, and 19-year-old family friend Raynard Daniel were killed in the shooting.

Justin Cato, 23, who is Benton's boyfriend, survived the shooting.

Gwinnett County police released two 911 calls made that night regarding the shooting.

One was made by a next-door neighbor, and the other by Cato.

"We got a man chasing a woman. He got a machine gun. He chased her down the street. She might be dead," said the neighbor to the dispatcher.

In the call Cato made. He said he was shot with an assault rifle.

Detectives tell CBS Atlanta News that they still do not know Bell's motive.

Police said Benton allowed the suspect and his wife to move into their home on Anderson Livsey Way because they had nowhere to live.

Investigators said they found an assault rifle that they believe was the murder weapon in Bell's SUV.

Anyone with information should contact homicide unit detectives at 770-513-5300.
