Matthew Thomas Bernard, 18, was arrested on three charges of first-degree murder, a spokesman for Pittsylvania County, Virginia said in a statement to CNN.
An emergency call on Tuesday morning at 8 o'clock in the morning reported that a person had been shot, the spokesman said. The deputies went to the place where they found a deceased woman in the driveway and the bodies of another woman and a child in the house.
Bernard was arrested when he ran out of wooded area around 12:15 am, the spokesman said. A first court appearance is not planned.
CNN has attempted to reach the suspect's surviving family without comment.
