A man suspected of killing five of his neighbours in Texas has been arrested after police found him hiding in a cupboard underneath a pile of laundry.

Francisco Oropesa was detained north of Houston. He was several miles from his own home in the small town of Cleveland where the shootings happened on Friday.

Mr Oropesa is accused of attacking his neighbours after they allegedly asked him to stop practicing with his rifle as the noise was keeping a baby awake.

The victims included a nine-year-old.
