Bass said he immediately put out a 'be on the look out (BOLO)' for Holbrook's vehicle, advising officers to take caution because Holbrook was armed and earlier in the incident threatened to harm law enforcement.
The trooper said Lambey told him that an unidentified person turned around in his driveway during the incident. Lambey said he heard one of the suspects say "If that's the cops blast them," Bass recalled.
Word spread to the southern and outlying counties.
"The ball rolled pretty quick," Bass said of the alert being put out and the vehicle being located.
Putnam Deputy G.S. Scragg stopped the vehicle just after 9 a.m. Sunday near the entrance of the Liberty Square shopping plaza in Teays Valley. Hurricane police and Trooper C.M. Thornton also responded.
They found Holbrook in the vehicle with his mother and four juveniles including the 17-year-old boy and the 13-year-old girl and Holbrook's younger siblings aged 10 and 13.
A search of the vehicle turned up a .22-caliber rifle, a shotgun and a flat pry bar in the trunk of the vehicle. A .22-caliber pistol "loaded and ready to go" was found under the driver's seat, Thornton said.
Holbrook was believed to have been under the influence of controlled substances, Thornton said. While sitting in the back of Thornton's cruiser he told the trooper his intention had been to kill Lambey.
The two young children were released to family members Sunday afternoon. As of Sunday evening Holbrook's mother remained in police custody for questioning.
Holbrook and the 17-year-old boy were taken into custody. The 13-year-old female was released to her parents.
Holbrook was being held at Western Regional Jail on a $105,000 bond. The teen was taken to Tiger Morton Juvenile Center.
Holbrook and the teen boy faced charges of kidnapping, burglary of a dwelling, wanton endangerment, unlawful assault and conspiracy of a felony.
Troopers still are investigating the incident. More arrests and charges are possible, troopers said.
