A man was taken into custody in Cleveland this morning for the Sunday shooting of two women in Fostoria that left one dead and another in critical condition.
Calvin Dixson, 37, initially remained at large Monday morning but was later taken into custody in Cleveland, Fostoria Safety Service Director Allyson Murray confirmed.
Dixson was wanted after allegedly shooting an ex-girlfriend and her mother while they were sitting in a vehicle on Bannister Street in Fostoria at about 1:30 p.m. Sunday. Police believed he had fled to either the Cleveland area or Perrysburg, where his mother is a resident.
Lisa Stowers, 50, was found dead at the scene, and her daughter, Tyeesha Ferguson, 36, was transported by air ambulance to Toledo Hospital with multiple gunshot wounds, where she remains in critical condition, Fostoria Police Capt. Patrick Brooks said.
Police believe a 9 mm handgun was used in the assault, but it was not recovered in Fostoria.
Dixson recently threatened Ferguson and her family members and appears to have a “history of violent tendencies,” Brooks said. Ferguson had obtained a protection order against Dixson, though the reason for their estrangement was unknown, he said.
