CAMBRIDGE, Md.- A 19-year-old man is facing murder and related charges in connection with an early Tuesday triple shooting in the Salisbury area that left a woman dead and her two daughters injured.
The suspect, identified as Myles David Lyons of Salisbury, was arrested early Tuesday afternoon at a home on the 900 block of Phillips Street in Cambridge. According to Wicomico County Sheriff Mike Lewis, Lyons would not surrender so police had to kick the home's door down to take him out by force. The sheriff said Lyons will be brought back to Wicomico County where he will face first-degree murder and attempted murder charges.
Lyons was wanted in connection with an incident that occurred at around 3:30 a.m. Tuesday at a home on Jersey Road just northwest of Salisbury. When deputies arrived on the scene, they found a woman and her two teenaged daughters who had been shot.
The mother was identified as 39-year-old Lakisha Jackson, who suffered a gunshot wound to the face and in the chest and also had a stab wound to the chest. She was taken to Peninsula Regional Medical Center where she was pronounced dead.
One of Jackson's daughters, who was not identified due to her age, sustained a gunshot wound to her chest and a stab wound to her face.
Jackson's other daughter, 19-year-old Tyisha Jackson, suffered from two gunshot wounds to the back. Both Tyisha Jackson and her sister were taken to PRMC, where they are listed in critical condition.
Investigators said one of the injured teens was Lyons' girlfriend and 8-months pregnant with his child. According to police, the crime is believed to have been domestic-related.
Lyons fled the crime scene in a car, which later found in Cambridge. Police continued to search for Lyons, who was taken into custody early Tuesday afternoon.
