(CBS) FARMINGTON HILLS, Mich. - After an intensive police search Monday, a 19-year-old Tucker Robert Cipriano was arrested for allegedly killing one of his family members in a deadly attack. Two other members of his family were also assaulted and are currently hospitalized.

The Detroit News reports that according to police, one other unidentified person was taken into custody earlier Monday.

Farmington Hills Police Chief Chuck Nebus said Cipriano, along with another person, broke into the home just before 3 a.m. Authorities were called to the scene after receiving a phone call about a domestic dispute at the house.

Cipriano's father, Robert Cipriano, director of public services for the Dearborn School System, was killed in the attack.

Robert Cipriano's wife, Rose, and son, Tanner were also injured. Both were taken to Botsford General Hospital where their conditions remain unknown.

Cipriano had been diagnosed with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder and has convictions over the past three years for possession of marijuana and morphine. He has been seeing counselors since he was in the second grade.

CBS Detroit reports that several surrounding schools were on lock down while the suspect was still at large.  The lock downs have since been lifted.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Farmington Hills Police Department at (248) 871-2610.
