SWAT teams swarmed a downtown Tampa hotel early Friday to arrest a suspect in a quadruple killing and a 4-year-old autistic boy believed to be the man's son was found safe, Tampa police said. Police said they took Adam Matos, 28, into custody at the Floridian Hotel and multiple charges are pending. The child, Ismael Tristan Santisteban, was with him, reports the Associated Press.

A tip led multiple law enforcement agencies to downtown Tampa.

The search for Matos and the boy began Thursday after Sheriff's deputies in nearby Pasco County conducted a welfare check at a Hudson home. The deputies who stopped by the home noticed a bad odor. They walked down the street toward an area where birds were circling and found four bodies piled on top of each other.

Matos quickly became a suspect. He had been seen in the area recently and Pasco County Sheriff Chris Nocco said the killings were not a random act.
