The prime suspect in two shootings in Dayton, Ohio that killed four people has been taken into custody, police confirmed Saturday.
Stephen Marlow, 39, was arrested in Kansas by the Lawrence Police Department, Butler Township Police Chief John Porter said at a news conference. The suspect was arrested around 10 p.m
Porter said local authorities are making arrangements to extradite Marlow.
This ends a nationwide search for Marlow, who was believed to be armed and dangerous. A teenage girl and her mother were involved in the shooting in the Dayton area on Friday.
Eva and Clyde Knox were found dead at their home on Friday morning. Sarah Anderson and her 15-year-old daughter Kayla were also found dead shortly thereafter.
The suspect had fled the state after the shooting in a white 2007 Ford Edge SUV with an Ohio license plate.
Marlow was charged with four counts of first-degree murder on Friday.
On Saturday, prior to the arrest, the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Ohio issued a federal warrant for an illegal escape to avoid prosecution.
