So far the authorities believe the events that transpired are related to an ongoing domestic issue related to the suspect and the victims. According to UCSO, the shooter was apprehended and taken into custody near the intersection of Highway 80 and West Loop 281 in Longview. Adkins' bail has been set at $4 million.
