GALLATIN, Tenn. (AP) -- Police in Sumner County have arrested the 17-year-old son of a couple found dead in the family's home.

Sheriff's office Maj. Don Linzy said the bodies of Gary and Tammy Moore were found Monday in their home in the Cottontown community after police stopped the couple's son in Robertson County and found weapons and prescription drugs in his car.

After the traffic stop, Robertson County authorities asked Sumner County officials to check on the home and the deaths were discovered, according to The Tennessean.

A second suspect was taken into custody on Tuesday.
