Deputy Expected To Survive, Suspect In Custody After Shooting


Authorities in southwest Ohio say a suspect is in custody for a shooting at an apartment complex that left two people wounded, including a sheriff's deputy.

Lt. John Faine of the Warren County Sheriff's Office said early Friday that 19-year-old Mohammed Abdou Laghaoui was found at about 5 a.m., not far from the shooting scene, after a seven-hour manhunt.

No further information about how the suspect was apprehended was immediately available.

Faine said the female deputy who was shot while responding to a report of a domestic situation at the apartment complex at about 9:45 p.m. Thursday has been treated and released from a hospital. Another person also was shot and taken to a hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

The names of the two were not immediately released.

A shelter-in-place order has been lifted in Deerfield Township, about 25 miles northeast of Cincinnati.
