Shooting suspect believed headed to MA arrested
FRAMINGHAM, Mass. (WHDH) -- Police say a man who killed two people in Florida and threatened to kill executives at an office in Framingham was arrested in Louisiana Wednesday morning.
Authorities arrested 55-year-old Kevin Satterfield at a motel near Baton Rouge, La. Wednesday morning. He is accused of shooting and killing his wife and his daughter's boyfriend, and shooting his pregnant daughter inside a home near Orlando, Fla. His daughter is expected to survive her injuries.
After the overnight murders, police say Satterfield threatened to drive to Cumberland Farms headquarters in Framingham to shoot executives. Satterfield reportedly told his mother about his plan.
Satterfield worked as a regional manager for three Cumberland Farms stores in Florida for about 20 years. He was fired last summer after allegedly trying to cover up for another employee who was stealing.
Police in Framingham were on alert for Satterfield Wednesday morning, and plans were in place to have officers at the Cumberland Farms building in Framingham, but with Satterfield’s arrest, police and workers alike were able to breathe a sigh of relief.
Cumberland Farms has not commented on the incident.
