SALISBURY, Md.- As Salisbury murder suspect Myles David Lyons sits behind bars, there is word his child has been born and is doing OK.

Lyons, 19, is accused of shooting and stabbing his 17-year-old ex-girlfriend who was 8-months pregnant. She said Lyons is the baby's father.

Wicomico County Sheriff Mike Lewis said that if there is any good news out of this tragedy, it is that the baby was delivered and appears to be doing fine.

Lyons is charged with first-degree murder and attempted murder in connection with Tuesday morning's incident that occurred at a home on Jersey Road in Salisbury. In addition to wounding his ex-girlfriend, Lyons is accused of fatally shooting her 39-year-old mother, Lakisha Jackson. Lyons is also alleged to have shot and wounded Jackson's other daughter, 19-year-old Tyisha Jackson.

Lyons, who was captured by police in Cambridge early Tuesday afternoon, is being held without bond in the Wicomico County Detention Center.

There is no word yet on the condition of the two victims who survived the shooting.
