The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation announced Friday that a former Elizabethton resident has been arrested in the shooting deaths of a woman and three teenagers whose bodies were found in a car in a former mountain resort in Cumberland County.

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 driver Danielle Jacobson, 22, and passengers Steven Presley, 17, Dominic Davis, 17, and John Lajeunesse, 16.

Deputy District Attorney General Gary McKenzie said the suspect and the victims knew each other "to some degree," but declined elaborate on a possible motive or any other details.
