Police say they received a number of leads and Crime Stoppers tips. Then the Marshals task force tracked Holmes to the home on Powell and took him into custody with help from the Shelby County Fugitive Apprehension Team and MPD officers from the North Main and Tillman stations.

Police say Rainer and a woman were shot inside a home on McLean not far from the school early Sunday morning. Rainer died but the woman is expected to recover.
