Authorities captured a suspect in the deadly shooting of a superintendent in western New York.
Shenandoah County Sheriff's Office assisted U.S. Marshalls to find Anthony Taglianetti off Woodstock Tower road in Fort Valley on Friday.
Investigators believe Anthony Taglianetti drove to Clymer Superintendent Keith Reed Jr. western New York home and fatally shot him on the night of Sept. 21 before returning to Virginia.
Authorities believe Taglianetti was camping in George Washington National Forest.
Rebecca Lhereux lives close to that area. She said she can't imagine that happened that close to her house.
"It just seems a very private, quiet area," she said.
Lhereux's husband, Scott, said he walks with his family along the trails all the time.
"To learn that someone could be in the midst of those trails, especially someone that could potentially be of harm, it's certainly something to be alarmed about and take caution," he said.

Scott said it's scary to not know who is in the woods.

"It's a possibility anywhere you go, but when it hits home close. It's a little more frightening, it's a little more eye opening," he said.

It's eye opening for Alex Brown who comes to the area every two weeks to relax.

"Honestly, i think it's scary because no one stays in the house we stay at, anyone could break in at any point in time," Brown said.

Rebecca said they've already thought someone was trying to break into one of their cars.

" I wasn't too happy about it. I thought someone was snooping around. But there was no. We didn't find anybody," she said.
But she said she feels a little safer now.

"I'm thankful for that. Especially for walking around, the kids like to play in the woods. You know we like to be out."

Taglianetti was taken to Prince William County.
