Four people are in police custody in connection with a fatal shooting earlier this month on Cash Hollow Road, and authorities are still searching for two others.

Brandon Miller, 33, was arrested Tuesday night in Seymour, Tennessee, after a chase and a three-hour standoff with officers from multiple police agencies. He was charged with voluntary manslaughter related to the shooting of Charles Shelton, 31, and four counts of attempted voluntary manslaughter.

Two people police said Miller shot at from his residence at 415 Cash Hollow Road, Jason Hargrove and Hailey Donald, are in custody and charged with especially aggravated robbery. Donald was captured after the incident, police said, when she sought treatment for a gunshot wound at the Johnson City Medical Center. 

Two others, Allyson Abram and Dylan Childress, are wanted on charges of especially aggravated robbery, but have not yet been located by Washington County officers.

Summer Bentley, who police said fled with Miller after the shooting, was arrested Tuesday at the residence in Seymour in which Miller was originally found. She was charged with accessory after the fact.
