LONDON (AP) — British police have arrested a 26-year-old man on suspicion of killing two sisters and their mother in a crossbow attack.

In a statement Friday, Hertfordshire Police said that the suspect remains in a serious condition in hospital.

Police previously said that Kyle Clifford was captured on Wednesday following a near day-long manhunt in a cemetery near his home in Enfield, around 15 miles (24 kilometers) from the scene of the crimes.

The three women — the family of a well-known BBC commentator —- were found with serious injuries at their home in the quiet residential neighborhood of Bushey, northeast of the capital, on Tuesday evening. Police and ambulance crews tried to save Carol Hunt, 61, and her daughters Hannah, 28, and Louise, 25, but they were pronounced dead at the scene.

The women were the wife and two daughters of BBC radio’s sports commentator John Hunt, the main horse racing commentator for BBC 5 Live, the corporation’s news and sports radio channel. His voice is known to millions through his coverage of the world famous Grand National and The Derby.

Officers who found Clifford took him away on a stretcher from Lavender Hill Cemetery with undisclosed injuries. Police said no shots had been fired.
