A 54-year-old man was arrested in Ohio Friday night after an 11-hour manhunt that followed the shooting death of Rebecca Jean Rogers.
ABC 9 reports that Rogers was shot and fatally wounded Friday morning while working in a Bob Evans restaurant in Canton, Ohio.
The suspected gunman, Rogers’ ex-boyfriend, was identified as 54-year-old Richard James Nelson. A manhunt ensued that lasted throughout the day.
The Daily Mail notes that Nelson was arrested 11 hours later and charged with Rogers’ murder in what appears to be a “domestic incident.”
Police say Nelson allegedly entered the restaurant with a gun and Rogers saw him and tried to run away. However, Nelson allegedly fired at her as she ran down a hall, striking her “multiple times.” Nelson then fled the scene.
The CantonRep.com explains that Nelson was captured by a police dog Friday night around 8:30.
