Suspect in Clymer shooting arrested in Virginia

Authorities in Virginia have apprehended the suspect in last weekend's killing of Clymer Schools Superintendent Keith Reed.

Forty-two-year-old Anthony Robert Taglianetti was taken into custody without incident Friday afternoon at Shenandoah Valley National Park in Virginia. Police were patrolling areas where the suspect was thought to be in when they spotted his moving vehicle. Taglianetti was then stopped and arrested.

Reed was found dead outside his home Monday morning.

Chautauqua County Sheriff Joseph Gerace identified Taglianetti as their prime suspect yesterday. Gerace declined to comment on a motive, other than to say Taglianetti allegedly traveled to Chautauqua County to carry out the shooting.
